...istry burn-out, grief and loss, life and ministry transition, psycho-sexual immaturity, the father wound, the mother wound and psycho-social impairment, recovery from dysfunctional family and community systems and healing victims of violence and adult children of trauma. The Vitality program is designed for both individual and group participation and offers a prayerful environment for those who seek personal discernment, healing and direction. Who Can Benefit? Our most recent participants have been men and women religious, priests, seminarians and laity of all ages from around the country with varied backgrounds and training. The one most common factor is their desire for an in-depth and intensive therapeutic experience that prepares them for active ministry and equips them with mature life skills for ‘living life to the full.’ (Jn10:10) Many participants have come to heal their father wound which has left them unable to establish boundaries, maintain healthy relationships, manage and contain personal life choices, work well with authority, procrastinate and self-sabotage. Others have come to heal their mother wound that may has left them with emotional paralysis, frozen feelings or enmeshment, disaffected with body image, fear of sexuality and sensuality or an inability to relate to self, God and others. e-mail: themercycenter@aol.com or call (719)633-2302.
