Path Of the Heart Weekend Intensive September 7, 2018
“One of the most courageous decisions you’ll ever make is to finally let go of what is hurting your heart and soul.” ~ Brigitte Nicole
“If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can’t survive.” ~ Brene Brown
The Path Of the Heart Intensive is about reclaiming the authentic Self. If you would like to find personal peace, release past issues that continue to weigh you down, and reclaim your right to feel good about life then this weekend is for you. The results of participating in one of these intensives can be exponential. Expect to jump 3- 6 months ahead in your healing journey. These events are called Intensives because they accomplish an immense amount of work in a short amount of time. The Path of the Heart Intensive is modeled after The Meadow’s Survivor’s Week, created by Pia Mellody, author of Facing Codependency, and after the Breaking Free Intensive at Shades of Hope Treatment Center. The longest eighteen inches in the world is the space between the head and the heart. Rebecca will assist you in moving into the heart by reclaiming feelings, renewing your commitment to life, and learning how to step into your Wise Woman/Man self. Until the child within is healed the Wise Self will struggle to come forward. During this intensive we will investigate the origins of adult dysfunctional behaviors (i.e., addictions, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, etc.). Participants will take an in-depth look at their history, including childhood wounds which fuel adult dysfunction. The focus is not on blaming caregivers, but rather on healing the trauma and its residual effects. The goal of the intensive is to work on the resolution of trauma and to give back carried feelings incurred from principal caregivers during less-than-nurturing events, abuse, abandonment, enmeshment, and neglect.
- Do you sometimes feel as if you are on the outside looking in?
- Do you desire awareness about why you continually attract unavailable people?
- Do you have unsatisfying, dysfunctional relationships?
- Have you been told or have you begun to realize that you do not know how to set boundaries with others or with yourself?
- Do you have persistent feelings of victimization? “Why me?”, “Nothing good ever happens to me.”, “Will I ever get over my past?”
- Do you have feelings of anger, shame (inadequacy), loneliness, guilt, or sadness/emotional pain?
- Have you longed for peace and closure around your family of origin and early experiences?
- Do you suffer from depression, self-doubt, dissatisfaction, and hopelessness?
- Do you have addictions of your own or seem to attract others who do?
With her skills in counseling, guided imagery, meditation, Gestalt and experiential techniques Rebecca can help you break free of the past and experience the freedom to move fully forward. This weekend is about you, exploring your inner dialogue and finding your voice. Within the safety and validation of the small group process, you will share your story and release pent-up emotions. From 1999 to 2002 Rebecca worked closely with Tennie McCarty and Cindy Henson as a therapist at Shades of Hope Treatment Center. Tennie and Cindy are highly regarded as master therapists in their fields and recently Tennie has enjoyed acclaim due to her reality-based TV show Addicted To Food on Oprah’s OWN Network, as well as appearances on Dr. Oz and Intervention. During her work at Shades of Hope, Rebecca facilitated Family Week, the 5 Day Eating Disorder Intensive, and co-facilitated the Breaking Free Intensive with both Tennie and Cindy. This Intensive is for those seeking empowerment through inner healing around codependency, dysfunctional family, family of origin, inner child, traumatic events, love addiction, love avoidance, serial, painful and abusive relationships, and life transition issues. If you are not currently working with Rebecca individually, please call to discuss your inclusion in the intensive.

~ Participant Reviews ~
“I had a deep, enriching experience in Rebecca’s intensive workshop. I felt very safe with the women she chose to put together for my group. Rebecca is an amazing facilitator in that she is so compassionate and loving, yet she is direct and precise. I came away with a much better understanding of and belief in my self-worth. I felt the courage to face some things I hadn’t been willing to deal with, and a transformation has since taken place that has brought me much more peace in my life.” …. S.B., Texas
“Right away I want to say I almost bailed hours from the starting time of the Intensive because my fears came up for me big time. And if not for Rebecca talking me through I would have missed a huge healing opportunity in my life. So for anyone feeling fears my advice is to REACH OUT to Rebecca. Do Not let fear stop you. This experience was so powerful for me, and I am proud of anyone who can be so courageous !! After the first night, I made the decision to give my all and not hold anything back as I do so much in my life. Now I can not say all my fears went away after that one weekend, but I am definitely more conscious of the times I am running away, putting my head in the sand, overeating in order to numb or try to stop the pain of shame and anger, or of when I step onto the Victim Triangle. We are blessed to have Rebecca to lovingly support us as We walk our paths to be the wild warrior woman that we are.” …. K. S., Texas
