The Village facilitates an experience to transform the unconscious beliefs currently keeping her socially stuck. Transformation is easier to facilitate in Village than any other program context because of the lack of distractions and the powerful community support that is cultivated in this space. Students often report that Village makes change feel like a natural next step because of the newfound truths they bring back to campus life.
Surrounded by 8 or so other girls, removed from the daily distractions of life on campus, your daughter will engage in therapeutic exercises, meditations, visualizations, and meaningful discussion to help her illuminate the social patterns and beliefs that haven’t been serving her ability to form supportive friendships.
Village is the place where students gain motivation to change the ways they handle difficult emotions. The power of the community context and overall atmosphere that is created in this experience can cultivate lasting bonds between the girls who attend. Imagine how different your daughter’s choices would be if she gained unending support from a group of girls and mentors who believe in her.
