Mars Hill, North Carolina, January 29, 2019 – Recovering from Religion announces its first-ever weekend religion recovery experience in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. “Embrace your Nature” will be a weekend of support, fellowship, encouragement, and learning for anyone experiencing negative effects of doubt or disbelief.
The September 20-22, 2019 event combines a retreat setting, fall weather, supportive volunteers, mental health professionals, and a schedule of workshops and speakers. The idea is to create an experience of recovery and inspiration unlike any event offered before.
In 10 years of providing hope, help, and community, RfR recognized the need for a real-time, real-space encounter for people who may be experiencing isolation, relationship fractures, judgment, and loss of social network. In addition to a 24-hour Helpline, which includes a telephone hotline and an internet chat, RfR offers local Support Groups, an Online Community, and the Secular Therapy Project.
The effects of doubting and leaving one’s faith can include impact on social, physical, relational, emotional, and psychological health. The effects can last for years, and interfere with a person’s ability to live a happy, productive life. Therapy, peer support, and a connection to community can all be helpful in the peace restoration process.
