Jennifer, Portland, Maine March, 2013
I am so honored to be able to share my story. A little over a year ago I found myself in a deep depression, what one may refer to as the “dark night of the soul”. The grief and loss I had experienced through out my life had come to the forefront. I could no longer ignore it. In fact, I completely resisted to it and felt hopeless through out the process. For many months, I questioned whether or not I wanted to exist. I tried traditional models of care including therapy and medications. Nothing worked. A friend recommended the White Raven Center. The first few weekends were a blur. I was shrouded in such intense grief that I could not grasp the powerful work that was happening around me. With time, intense love, kindness and persistence of all the amazing facilitators, I was able to make my way out of the spiritual crisis. I can honestly say that White Raven saved my life. Today, I feel lucky to have a second chance and have found pure joy in life. Thank you.
