Each of the retreat team members has felt a strong calling to help others heal from the damage caused or associated with abortion. All of us have attended a retreat before serving on a retreat team. We have been taught by our founder that you cannot empathize or have compassion for those who are hurting unless you have experienced healing yourself. Some of the retreat team members have experienced abortion while some have not. Dr. Burke desires a mixed team in order that those affected by an abortion experience come to know that they are not judged by those who have not.

We have various meetings for friendship and training each year, in addition we take turns attending regional or international training conferences offered by Dr. Theresa Burke.
