Matt Linn, SJ
Scarritt Bennett Center, Nashville, TN
Just as we have a natural process to stop the bleeding and heal our physical wounds so too we have a natural grieving process to heal emotional hurts. This retreat will slowly walk through the healing of a hurt with its five stages of denial, anger, bargaining, depression (shame and guilt) and acceptance (discovering our gifts). Each session will end with group prayer or an exercise for healing the hurt. As the emotions of anger, shame and guilt are allowed to be felt and loved, they serve us rather than continue as compulsive enemies. They become drives to give and receive life rather than drives further wounding us and others. As the hurts heal, we discover new gifts for relating to God, community and others.
