Healing of Memories for Veterans

Unlock and unload the pain

Separate and distinct from the Counseling ministry at the Casa is a special retreat held exclusively for veterans of war or those recovering from traumatic experiences in the United States military. This extended-weekend experience helps attendees begin to synthesize their story and release the pain of what has been done to them, what they’ve been asked to do to others, and perhaps what they’ve failed to do for themselves or someone else. It is led by Fr. Michael Lapsley, an Anglican priest and victim of political persecution during the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa. His worldwide Institute for the Healing of Memories comes to the Casa twice each year, specifically to help American vets.
