STEPPING BACK to MOVE FORWARD - LIVING the NEW NORMAL! 

Understanding the Emotional Journey & Trauma behind Brain Injury/Post-Concussion Syndrome. 

Has your life or someone else’s life been impacted negatively, in any of the following areas, after sustaining, a concussion or mild brain injury? 

 Family/friends/relationships 
 Work Performance/Lifestyle Impacted Negatively 
 Do you avoid or shun noisy, crowded, social situations, or family gatherings since your injury? 
 Has your extended social community shrunk? 
 Do you feel isolated, misunderstood, abandoned? 
 Do you struggle with chronic mental fatigue, anxiety or depression? 
 I AM A CAREGIVER/OR CONNECTED TO THE SURVIVOR IN SOME OTHER ROLE. 
 You don’t know HOW BEST to support the survivor or your loved one. 

If you answered YES! to any or ALL of the above questions this RETREAT is for YOU! 

Brain Injury and Post-Concussion recovery impacts the survivor in 4 KEY areas: 
a). cognitive 
b). physical 
c). emotional 
d). behavior. 

Concussion also impacts OTHERS in the survivor’s circle, spouse, partner, family members, caregivers, employers, educators and extended community. 

The goal and vision for bringing you all together, in this beautiful, relaxed, retreat setting, is to: 

1. To increase awareness regarding brain injury and Post-Concussion Syndrome; 
2. To empower survivor (s) with resilience and their family with understanding; 
3. To facilitate community between survivors, caregivers, and other investors;
4. To provide a safe space in nature for everyone to enjoy respite and/or healing. 

We will discuss the emotional challenges “beyond the physical recovery”, how to manage prolonged symptoms, and HOW others can support the survivor in recovery. There will also be a variety of calming, indoor and outdoor breakout activities, specifically designed with YOU, your caregiver (s), or other investors needs in mind. 


You are ALL invited to attend!
