Haven Healing Retreat—Post Abortion Healing Weekend for women

September 30, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - October 2, 2022 @ 4:00 pm

“Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.”
Haven Healing Retreat is being held in Christchurch on the 30th of September–2nd October and is for women who are struggling with abortion grief and loss.

Often, we can be suffering in silence and wondering who we can reach out to.
Who will listen to my story?
How can I work through these feelings of grief and loss?
Who else really understands what I am going through?
Is there hope and healing?

The weekend retreat is a wonderful opportunity to embark on the journey of healing and connect with others in a place of safety. A place to be heard, confidential, non-judgement, bringing hope, peace, healing and love.

The weekend will be facilitated by myself, Marina Young, and an assistant. I am the founder of Buttons Project, which was born out of my own abortion experience and journey of healing.
2 nights’ accommodation and meals at no cost, as we have sponsorship.

Please register:

Haven Healing Retreat is brought to you by Voice For Life Canterbury and The Buttons Project.
