Rachel’s Vineyard weekends are a beautiful opportunity for any person who has struggled with the emotional or spiritual pain of abortion. The weekend is a very specific process designed to help you experience the mercy and compassion of God. It is also an opportunity to surface and release repressed feelings of anger, shame, guilt, and grief.
Each weekend is run by volunteers who care deeply about your needs. Many of the facilitators have suffered the same loss.
The weekend is a chance to get away from daily pressures, to focus on the buried emotions of the past in light of present symptoms, and begin healing through a supportive trauma sensitive process. Rachel’s Vineyard provides a non-judgmental, safe environment. The weekend will help your soul find a voice, and transform the pain of the past into hope and love. You are not alone.
