Journey To Freedom

Making Positive Life Changes

Is there anything in your life that you would like to change? Most of us have tried to make changes in our lives and have failed. Change is not impossible. Like most things in life that are worthwhile, change requires practice, training, and a solid foundation.

Journey to Freedom can provide the support you need to change your life for the better. This healing community of 8-10 people also experiencing change can help you work through changes both large and small. Journey to Freedom can help you experience lasting change and a better life.

It combines small group classes with health and well-being services to give you the best of both worlds, focusing on the whole you – spirit, mind and body while you work your specific needs and goals. Past participants have been able to address challenges related to their relationships and family dynamics, careers, weight/food/body image issues, grief/loss, anxiety and so much more.

Sessions are currently underway. Look for new sessions at Fulton Family YMCA, William G. White, Jr. Family YMCA, Statesville Family YMCA, and Stokes Family YMCA coming in September!

$64 with Financial Assistance available

Please inquire at the Welcome Center for more information or contact Ed Barron at 336-245-5825 or e.barron@ymcanwnc.org
