What is Healing the Wounds of Religion?


A transformative, inspiring, and rejuvenating workshop designed to help you identify past wounds

and move towards healing.


Are you a (ex)parishioner, pastor, minister, or church leader that has experienced upset and disappointment through

your involvement in a religious institution?


Are you an individual who has never felt connected to or been rejected from a faith community because of your

lifestyle or personal history?


Do you feel disconnected from the Sacred because of an experience in your past that has caused a rift in your relationship

to the Sacred?


Discover how to identify these wounds of religion and take concrete actions at reconnecting and healing broken relationships.


The Healing the Wounds of Religion one day intensive workshop has been created to support you in working through challenges and can assist you in restoring broken relationships and reigniting a deep and healing connection with the Sacred.


Wouldn’t you like to be in a position where you are no longer captive to the events, emotions, and experiences of the past that keep you from moving forward in life with freedom and restoration?


At Healing the Wounds of Religion, you will:


  • Identify life experiences with religious or faith communities that have wounded you and/or caused broken relationships with family, loved ones, the Sacred, and even within yourself;

  • Examine the lasting impacts of these experiences and wounds in your present reality; and,

  • Obtain concrete tools and practices that can facilitate healing and reconnection.


What to expect from Healing the Wounds by Religion:


We can sometimes feel powerless and or alone in the face of examining our past experiences, especially with religious institutions or faith communities that have wounded, hurt, rejected, or treated us unfairly.  Healing the Wounds of Religion is a perfect opportunity to examine these wounds and become equipped with tools and practices to move from woundedness to wholeness while embracing the universal love from the Sacred.


Oftentimes, our past experiences color our present reality and prevent us from living into the fullness of our lives and experiencing the depth of love that the Sacred has for each one of us.  This workshop is the perfect time to focus on identifying those experiences, give voice to that pain, and make concrete actions towards moving forward in wholeness.


This workshop will allow you to pause for a moment, reflect, and be embraced in a safe space to discuss these issues. This Healing the Wounds of Religion intensive workshop was created to allow you the opportunity to rediscover healing, restoration, and wholeness in your relationship to the Sacred, your community, and yourself.


You will be reminded that you are loved unconditionally and totally by the Sacred and that wholeness and healing can come through your own self-acceptance and restoration of relationships in various areas in your life and community.  


This day is both transformative and experiential. Prepare to go within to connect with your inner sacred self and recover what may have been lost.  You will spend time exploring parts of yourself and experiences that you may not have examined for quite some time.  You will experience relief and acceptance in the place of fear, confusion, judgement, and doubt.


What you can expect to leave with:


  • Revelation of universal love and your deep connectedness to the Sacred;

  • Action plan and resolve towards restoring broken and wounded relationships in a healthy way; and,

  • Tools and practices to implement in your spiritual journey to continue on the process to healing.


Healing the Wounds of Religion is for you if:


  • You are ready to make a commitment to yourself and want to identify and heal from experiences that keep you stuck.

  • You want to understand how to support others who may have been wounded by religion and become a resource for them.

  • You know you want to experience healing, wholeness, and a deeper connection with the Sacred.

  • You would like strategies and tools to help you move forward from past experiences and into forgiveness and healing.

  • You believe that healing is possible and necessary to improve your relationship with yourself, your community, and the Sacred.

  • You want to experience HEALING and no longer be a victim of the wounds of religion.  


This Program is NOT for You if:

  • You are unwilling to gain insight and confront experiences that keep you from experiencing healing and wholeness in your life.

  • You are not ready to examine your own woundedness and brokenness or assist others in doing the same.

  • You do not believe in the Sacred.


Who is your host?

Dr. Terrlyn L. Curry Avery is the creator of pastology, the cutting-edge field that focuses on the synergy between pastoring and psychology.  In her work both as an ordained minister and as a licensed psychologist, Dr. Curry Avery observed that although religion is a healing balm for some, often it is an instrument of wounding for others.  These wounds range from rejecting all connections with the Sacred to self-hatred to remaining in abusive relationships to refusing medical intervention to a belief that only MY religion is the "right" religion.


Her forward-thinking junction of two complementary fields was the impetus from which she launched her movement of healing religious wounds.  


Dr. Curry Avery emphasizes the journey toward sacred intelligence: the ability to tap into one’s internal source in order to move toward intelligent choices. Her mission is to help heal religious wounds through teaching individuals to recognize the impact of these wounds on a personal level (e.g., depression, poor self-worth, unhealthy life styles, and toxic relationships) as well as the broader society (e.g., violence, hate, discrimination, and hostility).  The increase in hate crimes and religious persecution has affirmed her beliefs that the wounds of religion are broad and require an understanding of the complexities of religious convictions in conjunction with one’s emotional development.

What previous workshop attendees have said:

"It has been a pleasure and healing journey to work with Dr. Curry Avery on some deep seated issues surrounding spiritual abuse and wounded by religion. Some of the issues were extremely mortifying and painful as a result of the abuse I experienced at a church. Subsequently, I was "stuck" in spiritual ambiguity as my trust in God waned.  I thought I could never trust God again! Working with Dr. Curry Avery has helped me to re-establish my trust in God and heal from spiritual trauma. I'm now confidently moving forward and applying my faith towards my true calling and divine purpose. I am extremely grateful for her assistance in helping me to heal and affirm my faith in God  and his calling for my life." ---J. Delancy

"Terrlyn’s workshops and retreats are inspiring and empowering.  She has a true gift for communicating very clearly and directly with so much empathy and grace that you can’t help but be moved.  When you add to this ability the safe and warm atmosphere Terrlyn creates and the soul searching activities she presents, you enter a sacred place of clarity, reflection and growth!  Building on these experiences I was blessed to spend some time working privately with Terrlyn. I know this directly lead to my personal recovery and ability to finally move beyond my past and into a place of pure forgiveness, peace and love! I can’t thank Terrlyn enough for the impact she has had on my life."

---J. Lynch
