Re-Entry for Overseas Personnel
Returning overseas personnel experience common themes as they discern how to live faithful to their overseas experience and relationships.
The Re-Entry Program is designed to help those returning to Canada following international placements in their process of transition and re-integration. A gentle group process designed to utilize talents and personal experiences of participants along with presentations by staff and resource people. The program is run as a retreat and is an opportunity to spend time with a supportive group of people who have in common the experience of transition to life in Canada.
Typically participation happens after a period of time back in Canada and a beginning experience of re-entry . Over the days of the program we walk together through activities that mirror transition. We explore together a letting go – letting be – letting begin model of transition. Themes explored include telling the story, loss and mourning, violence and trauma, conflict, gifts of our journey, and next steps.
