Our history can either imprison us or set us free. During this 5-day immersive retreat, we dive into your history to identify all events, patterns, and self-limiting beliefs that hold you back, keep you stuck, and make the life of your dreams seem out of reach or even impossible.

Our expert team guides you in confronting trauma head-on to reframe and move through it. Through immersive and experiential techniques, the stress-energy surrounding these major roadblocks can be released. A variety of highly effective healing modalities will equip you to redirect this energy and truly live life.

If you are feeling stuck, wounded, not good enough, full of shame and guilt, or have an overall sense of dissatisfaction, this workshop is your right next step. Freedom is waiting.

“As I stumbled my emotionally and physically fatigued self to 7:00 am yoga today, I noticed how different I felt compared to yesterday. One of my biggest fears about participating in trauma counseling was that it would stir up old pain and leave me sitting in it–worse off than I was before.

If we’re honest, I think that fear holds a lot of us back from getting help. Kind of the ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ sort of feeling with a twist toward, ‘If I’m doing kind of okay, let’s not risk it.’ I felt a lot of that yesterday. Today, I felt hope – like the risk might be worth it.”

Healing Modalities

Group Work

In the vulnerability of sharing your story and hearing the stories of others, you not only learn how “normal” you are, but you also begin to identify barriers, resolve issues, and move forward. This fostering of community develops a sense of firm support to take each step toward change.

Mindfulness & Yoga Nidra

Mindfulness practice brings alertness and awareness, relaxing and stabilizing the body and mind to prepare for healing. Yoga Nidra is a mindful yoga practice intended to explore and utilize your unconscious. The goal is an alignment of the right brain, left brain, sympathetic nervous system, and parasympathetic nervous system.


Powerful for self-discovery and personal growth, this type of practice is simple and readily accessible. A breathing method called “Conscious Connected Breathing” aims to clear and release physical, emotional, and mental blocks. Through the breath, we release suffering and focus energy, increasing our ability to love and enjoy life.

Somatic Experiencing

This alternative methodology aims to slowly correct the body’s incorrectly learned mechanisms of processing trauma and chronic stress. Focus is placed on the body’s physiological experiences rather than the details of the traumatic event. Gradually, you increase your body’s ability to process and release various sensations to adjust misplaced fight, flight, freeze, and collapse responses.

Experience-Based Processing

When your mind returns to trauma, you are re-experiencing that event. Experience-based processing uses role play, guided imagery, arts, props, or recreation to re-enter those emotions and events with new mindsets and new goals – to make progress, resolve issues, and heal.

Massage Therapy

Bodywork is a valuable tool in the recovery process, one that alleviates stress and improves the flow of energy. Mentally and physically, massage is a source of rest and refresh. Research has also shown that therapeutic touch can lift your spirits through human touch and intentional care.

Vision Board Design

When emotions and thoughts are difficult to articulate, creative expression can offer an alternate option. As a healthy outlet, vision board design can bring conclusions to the surface or simply allow you to release and identify emotions or thoughts, without the pressure of words.

“The 5-day program exceeded my expectations with the fabulous accommodations, beautiful scenery, and the wonderful facilitators. They guided myself and the other five people in my group in processing, psychodrama, and various activities which hit many places within myself that hadn’t been touched in years and some ever. I was honestly shocked at how much I got out of only five days there. The program helped me figure out what kind of therapy I really needed once I got home and gave me a great jumpstart to my healing.

I would recommend APN Rise to family, friends, and anyone who is wanting to better their life and their relationships.”
