Healing of Memories Workshops
For anyone who has experienced trauma—especially veterans, service members, guards, first responders, and those who care for them.
Everyone has a story to tell and every story needs to be heard, acknowledged and respected. These worships are the first step to personal healing. The International Healing of Memories workshops, designed by Fr Michael Lapsley, provide a safe, experiential and interactive way to overcome feelings of anger, loss, grief and guilt, and offer one step in the journey to psychological, emotional and spiritual healing and wholeness.
Healing of Memories Minnesota grew out of the Warrior to Citizen Campaign, a grass roots effort to support returning veterans and those who care for them. It provides a safe space and confidentiality where stories can be told and acknowledged. Through community donations, full scholarships are available to participating veterans.
