Take a day for yourself.

You and your parts deserve it.

Center and connect with your wise, intuitive, healing Inner Self along with other gentle souls weaving a shared and personal journey designed to generate a transformative and rejuvenating experience.

These Friday programs are one-day Internal Family Systems (IFS) workshop, retreat, & sanctuary. Navigate through, and care for, your own inner system. This retreat is perfect for rejuvenation & prevention of compassion fatigue, whether you are an educator, healer, or other professional.

Follow up on Saturday (and Sunday) with Body/Energy healing through yoga or tai chi classes and individual body/energy sessions by appointment. Or commune with nature in the Allegheny region by visiting any of our local rails-to-trails, or nearby Canoe Creek State Park where you might consider renting a cabin for the weekend.

A parts-work escape room game.

Be part of a therapy team - navigating through a fictitious person's protective system of parts on a healing journey that illustrates the process of IFS therapy. Learn about the internal family of parts through this challenging and fun escape room game.
