The Mother Wound
Why We Need the Nurturing Presence of Christ
A Retreat for Women
What was your relationship like with your mother as you were growing up?
Was she emotionally present to you or did she feel mostly distant? Was life typically all about her? Were you neglected or abandoned? Did she pass away during your childhood or young adulthood? These are only some of the mother wounds that women have suffered all through history.
Wounds from our mothers can come to us as children, as teenagers, and as adults. Many times, the wounds that our mothers pass on to us are what they experienced themselves. Wounds of abandonment, emotional distance, neglect, perfectionism, for example. In fact, these kinds of wounds can also come from other matriarchal figures such as grandmothers, aunts, teachers, and mothers-in-law.
If any of this resonates with what you have experienced or are experiencing now in your adult life, you are invited to come to this Women’s Retreat.
The Mother Wound: Why We Need the Nurturing Presence of Christ. It is an experience of being mindful of your wound in a safe place in the company of other women who have their own stories of mother wounds. If you have attended before and would like to attend again, I encourage you to do so. We all pray for the continued healing of our individual mother wounds as Christ continues His work in us to be more like Him.
No matter your age, life circumstance or role you are invited to attend the next Mother Wound Retreat at Country Lake Retreat Center. The price is $300 (there is scholarship help available if needed). You will experience the healing and hope that the nurture of Christ brings to our souls.
