Healing of Memories Workshop for Women Veterans

Announcing the first Healing of Memories Workshop of Women. It will be held at the Spirit in the Desert Retreat Center in Carefree, AZ on April 7 – 9, 2017. The workshop is devoted to women vets only and will provided them with a safe experiential and interactive way to address anger, loss, grief and guilt. The workshop is free of charge to any woman service member or veteran, including all meals and two nights lodging. It begins with dinner at 6pm on Friday, April 7 and ends at 2pm on Sunday, April 9. People who have attended this workshop say that it was a major step in their healing from their psychological and spiritual wounds. Transportation will be provided to those who need it.


The Healing of Memories Workshop was created by Father Michael Lapsley, an Anglican missionary priest, who in 1990 suffered the loss of his hands and the sight in one eye from a letter bomb that was sent to him in Zimbabwe by a supporter of the pro-apartheid government in South Africa. After a long recovery from the bombing, Father Lapsley decided to dedicate his life to helping victims of emotional, psychological and spiritual wounds inflicted by war, human rights abuses and other traumatic circumstances.


Any woman service member or veteran who is interested in the workshop may find out more information or register free for the workshop by contacting the workshop program manager, Mike Wold, a Navy veteran, at 651-687-9767 or email: michael_w_wold@msn.com. Space is limited to the first 20 registrants.
