All Kinds of News for January 10, 2018
In June of 2018, Greenbrier Academy for Girls will be offering a 3 day Intensive Village Retreat to Mothers of GBA students. This experience will not only provide greater support for an entire family system, but will provide an opportunity to support our parents at a greater capacity. Mothers will attend the village located on campus, atop the scenic mountain behind our main facilities.
The design behind the Village Retreat is to facilitate a rediscovery and redefinition of a participant's life mission, as well as increase their desire and capacity for virtue. Mothers will have the opportunity to go through therapeutic exercises, similar to our students, as they engage their whole selves in transformational healing. Limiting beliefs will be identified and transformed. The result is the healthy ability to give and receive love without unhealthy barriers, a critical component to building healthy connections and healing mother-daughter relationships.
Participating in a community context, removed from distractions of everyday life, mothers will be given the opportunity to reconnect with self in new and healthier ways.
Most GBA graduates attribute the Village as their most positive, impactful experience. Greenbrier is confident that extending the Village curriculum and Retreat experience to parents will create commonality between parents and students, as well as bridge a gap between experiences had and the language used, to describe that unique healing transformation we often witness as a result of the Village Retreat. Healing student includes healing families. This opportunity is the next step in Greenbrier Academy's family support systems. Greenbrier is proud to offer this next level of support.
”Who am I, what do I care about, and why?" "What is the value of being a mother?" "What is the value of leaving a legacy?" These are just some of life's deepest questions that village participants get to discuss and re-define as they go through the village curriculum
"Without the village my life would definitely be different. I wouldn't have a connection with myself the way I do now. The village brought opening to my heart and mind and a willingness to learn and grow more within myself and with others." -GBA Alumni
