Saturday Conference

Uncover the Healing Power of Your Story

This event is designed for anyone who wants the freedom and vitality that comes from engaging one’s own story in a deeper way.

Our stories shape and influence every dimension of our daily life and relationships. We often focus only on the positive experiences and put the painful ones behind us. Yet when the impact of our stories of wounding and heartache go unaddressed, we find ourselves bound to unhealthy patterns without hope for change.

Connection, presence and joy are possible if we are willing to go back to our origin stories that have deeper meaning and impact than we care to imagine.

By understanding more of your family of origin story, you can tend to the parts of you that were left behind but are now in need of healing and care. 

This conference will help you gain an understanding of how your past story is affecting your present day to day life. It will also invite you to truth-telling, healing lament, and lasting change.

“Our own life is the thing that most influences and shapes our outlook, our tendencies, and our decisions. It is the force that orients us toward the future, and yet we don’t give it a second thought, much less a careful examination. It’s time to listen to our own story.” – Dr. Dan Allender

The conference schedule is below.
