Many of us are among the walking wounded. Sometimes we know it; oftentimes, we don’t. We just know that we feel driven, drained, and/or chronically distracted, all of which are symptoms of unhealed, unacknowledged, or under-healed pain. Betty will offer this same retreat at Genesis from AUGUST 21-26, 2020.
