Mindful Transformation: 

 Redefining Your Trauma 


Mindful Transformation: Redefining Your Trauma is a 4-Day Therapy Intensive Workshop offered at Santé Center For Healing, that works with individuals who are struggling to move past traumatic event(s) that have occurred in their life.  Workshop participants are taught a new way to handle the upsetting thoughts they have as a result of trauma utilizing a therapy approach known as Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT).  Participants will not be asked to share specific details about their trauma, but instead, will be asked to talk about their beliefs and feelings related to their trauma.  Education around safety, trust, power and control, esteem and intimacy will also be provided.

What previous attendees have said: 

“I would not have healed from this trauma without the Santé Trauma Intensive. I feel like I did a complete 180.”

“I see light where there was darkness. I feel hopeful where I was hopeless. I know that if I continue this work I can be free from the pain that caused me to drink.”

“After many years of inpatient and outpatient therapy, this is the first time I feel hope for the future, that I am finally treating the root problem. Thank you. Big smile! Thank you to the kind, compassionate, brilliant and insightful staff. I am truly blessed.”
