Healing Abortion's Trauma and 'Rachel's Vineyard Retreat': From Three Participants

Australasian Catholic Record, The
Volume 86 Issue 2 (Apr 2009)

Abstract: The Rachel's Vineyard Retreat seminar designed for women and men touched by an abortion and the views of three participants are discussed. Three participants present different angles on the experience: the first from a woman participant ('Genevieve' - not her real name), the second deals with the retreat as a transformational process (Peter Maher) and some theological reflections from Tom Ryan bring the article to a close. All three participants comment in conclusion that the seminar is sensitively and prayerfully designed and blends the best of psychological, spiritual and scriptural resources under the guidance of skilled people and appropriately qualified professionals.
