One Week Event
Wednesday - Wednesday
Sometimes, when a problem is proving difficult to be solved, the solution can be found by looking at it from a different perspective and it is no different when looking at personal healing needs. For some, finding deep and lasting healing is elusive and hard-won. They may have even have experienced freedom for a short time but then the old issues start to rear their ugly heads again, leaving hopelessness and despair in the wake of fading freedom.
This course tackles these issues head-on by looking at the foundational principles of healing from a different angle, often revealing a pathway forward that has never been explored before. Considering not just the painful experiences of life but the responses to them, we can start to look with courage and truth at how wounding and dysfunction is shaping our lives and our life choices.
Using times of mentoring rather than ministry, it seeks to draw you into a closer and more engaging relationship with God. Whilst it may be difficult and challenging, our specially trained team will work closely with you, on an individual basis, to help you navigate through the old beliefs, behaviours, lies and coping mechanisms into a new way of living and a deeper and more profound connection with God.
Please Note: Previous attendance on an Ellel Healing Retreat is a pre-requisite for attending this event.
Using in-depth teaching, creative opportunities, group times, fellowship times and mentoring, this course is unique in its approach to healing and has often proven to be the key to breaking through into true and lasting freedom. It is particularly helpful for people who have difficulty with the life issues such as:
I feel lighter and freer and feel I know in my heart now what I previously only knew in my head.
Alongside the teaching, there will be daily rotations of mentoring sessions, group discussions and personal time. Additionally, there will be times of creativity and family fun together.
Forgiving the people who have hurt me is so freeing!
