Moving Forward: The Retreat for Women Healing from a Relationship with a Narcissist

November 5-8, 2020 | Newport Beach, California

You’re Invited

Being in a relationship with a narcissist comes with a rollercoaster of emotions — not the least of which are hurt feelings, frustration, disbelief, and even questioning your own sanity.

Nothing the narcissist says or does is consistent. They are caring and charming one moment, devaluing and spiteful the next. They will express one thing and then do another. When you confront them with these discrepancies, they blame you, claiming you are the crazy one. And at times, we begin to believe them.

For Yourself or a Loved One

A renowned psychiatrist stated: “Narcissist personality abuse is the abuse that is every bit as horrible, but it is the one that no one sees.”

Whether you (or someone you love) are living in a narcissistic abusive situation, need help leaving one or desire to not repeat the pattern of choosing these relationships, The Moving Forward Retreat offers 3 distinct opportunities to heal:

A. Education in what NPD (Narcissist Personality Disorder) is
B. An opportunity to dive deep into your unique situation with the help of a trained expert in psychodrama and sociometry
C. Leave the retreat with a support group of others who are currently in or have been in these relationships

NPD is a serious disorder and is potentially dangerous to those drawn into the abuser’s circle. It is dangerous emotionally, sometimes resulting in physical abuse and oftentimes will lead to physiological issues. They ruin relationships.

Let’s Refocus — on You!

Recuperating from a narcissistic relationship is a complex proposal, usually taking much longer to resolve than ending a so- called “normal relationship.” After walking on eggshells for years, it takes time for your system to normalize, to regain your psychological and bodily strength, and to rebuild your self-worth and a sense of who you are.

This retreat for women who are healing from being in a relationship with a narcissist supports you on your path of understanding what you’ve experienced, how to truly let go and move beyond your anguish, and then ultimately rebuild your life to become an even stronger and more resilient version of who you were intended to be.
