A Safe Space To Reconnect

Healing Pathways for Trauma Survivors

Feeling Stuck

Is trauma affecting your health and wellbeing?

Trauma presents differently for different people. One of the most profound impacts of trauma is nervous system dysregulation—causing a disconnect between mind, body, and spirit. This disconnection leads to a number of adverse effects on the functions of the body including heart rate, breathing, digestion, and rest to name just a few. This, in turn, leads to adverse emotional reactions.

Do any of the following sound familiar to you?

You experience feelings of insecurity and feel powerless over your life choices.

You feel overwhelmed by negative emotions such as fear, anger, or guilt.

You are feeling isolated from others and without a sense of purpose.

You struggle to trust yourself or others.

Our Unique Approach

Learn To Thrive.
Not Just Survive.

We understand the complexities of healing from trauma and are dedicated to helping survivors find peace and balance in their lives. Our team includes trauma-informed educators, advocates, coaches, and movement practitioners. They are trauma survivors themselves and have designed Unbounded Horizons to provide other survivors with the tools needed to find strength and resiliency in reconnecting — with themselves, with nature, and with a community of other survivors.

All I can say is wow!
Attending this retreat was the gift of a lifetime. I loved every second of it, even the uncomfortable parts. I've come away with so many tools, a full heart and so much peaceful motivation to continue doing "the work" of healing and living my purpose. The embodiment work was transformative, literally. I suffer from chronic pain and found myself 100% pain free by the last day, I definitely feel like I "shook off" some emotional damage after the embodiment sessions. I don't feel stagnant, stuck or bound up and I am beyond grateful for this newfound way of being in my body. The sound bath left me without words. One of the most beautiful experiences of my life. I wish I could express how profoundly moved I was and how deeply I loved I felt. I had an overwhelming sense of gratitude and peace for several days afterwards... Words are not enough to express my gratitude... I feel renewed and whole.
