Walking Through Heartache 

by Hayne Steen, MAMFT 

In just a couple weeks, I will be co-facilitating a weekend retreat through the theme of "Grief and Loss". If you know someone who might benefit from a weekend like this, feel free to send them this information. There are still some spots available. 

Men and women are cordially invited to the “Grief & Loss Retreat” retreat which will be held September 9-11, 2016. We have the privilege of having Gordon Bals, a sought after and seasoned professional counselor, facilitating our time together.

Who is invited? Men and women who are experiencing any kind of grief and loss.

Where are we staying? In two beautiful mountain homes on or near the Little River. There is a mens house and Women's house. There are 14 spots available on this retreat. There are spots for 6 women and 8 men.
Women’s Home – Huckleberry Haven
Men’s Home – Little River Harmony

How do I register? Register and pay online OR pay by sending a check.

What is the theme of the retreat? This retreat will be specifically addressing a subject many of us avoid. Gordon will be facilitating our time through a handful of guided conversations pertaining to grief and loss. There will be time to engage in conversation, time for solitude and silence and time for individual care.




Every guy needs a TRIBE.

Theme: Wholehearted
Dates: Start anytime for 16 consecutive weeks
Times: Thursdays @ 5:30-7:30pm 

TRIBE is open to 10 men at a time. We currently have one more seat available with a waiting list forming. 

TRIBE is extremely affordable at just $35 per session with a financial commitment to 16 consecutive weeks. Group members may pay for the 16 weeks up front to receive a $60 discount or commit to pay $35 on a weekly basis.  

How do I join? Email Hayne Steen to set up a phone consult. 

*Individual therapy with Hayne is also available at normal practice rates.

Pass this along to a church or school who you think might appreciate connecting with any of these resources.
