Why host this retreat?

At least 1 in 4 women in the US have experienced an abortion. Those who have experienced an abortion may have anxiety and panic attacks, intrusive re-experiences of past traumatic events, or may avoid things related to the event. She also may feel shame, guilt, anger, unresolved grief, a sense of detachment or a lack of support. For these women, healing can be found in community. We are hosting a weekend retreat that creates space to withdraw from the distractions of daily life and be immersed in restoration at beautiful Penuel Ridge Retreat Center, just 30 minutes from downtown Nashville.
