Our Retreat program is designed for adults (18+) with traumatic brain injury (including concussion) and caregivers (siblings and spouses) who are interested in participating in an interactive group setting to enhance personal growth and healing.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that disrupts the normal function of the brain. LYB Retreats are not currently available for people with other types of brain injuries (e.g., stroke, anoxia, tumor, meningitis, MS), which are considered non-traumatic acquired brain injuries because they are caused by internal factors.
How do I know if I’m ready?
People with TBI must be at least two years post injury and capable of participating in in a multi-day, overnight experience. Our retreats best serve people who can walk or use assistive devices for safe mobility, can follow directions, communicate, and attend to group workshops. You must be able to attend the entire retreat.
What is the cost?
There is no cost to attend our retreats. Participants are responsible for their own travel expenses to and from the retreat, but once there we provide lodging, food, and activities.
To fund the cost of each retreat and sustain the program so more people can attend, we rely on the group’s collective fundraising efforts. Each retreat participant is asked to join us in fundraising with a suggested goal of $1,000 (the true cost of each participant per retreat). This model enables LoveYourBrain to offer retreats at no cost to the participant and puts the participant in a unique position to help grow the retreat program and pass on their experience to others.
