Listen to the following conversation about this upcoming Mormon Matters retreat and others that take place under the Open Stories Foundation umbrella and that will be announced soon!
A MORMON MATTERS RETREAT!
“Navigating a Healthy Mormon Journey”
Led by Natasha Helfer Parker, LCMFT, CST,
Marty Erickson, LMFT, Ph.D, and Dan Wotherspoon, Ph.D.
26 – 28 AUGUST 2016, SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH
Many of us find ourselves a bit outside the Mormon norm but still feel committed to continue our journeys as engaged members of the church. This retreat is focused on building community among and strengthening Mormons like us in the following ways:
• Navigating faith development in adulthood, including the integration of new and enriching perspectives within a less-traditional Mormon paradigm
• Creating and nurturing healthy relationships, especially in light of faith and worldview differences
• Finding ways to full and healthy sexuality
• Raising children in ways that encourage them to have confidence and depth as they negotiate various Mormon terrains
• Finding friends/community who have similar outlooks and can offer support

We look forward to seeing you there! I know it will be something everyone will really enjoy as well as receiving great perspectives, renewed energies, and making new friends!
