What we're about

The primary focus of Recovering from Religion is to provide practical and personal support to individuals as they question and possibly choose to let go of their religious beliefs. This transitional period is an ongoing process that can result in a range of emotions, as well as a ripple effect of consequences throughout an individual's life.

We are here to help you through this journey!

RfR Fall Excursion

Memory Mountain at Wolf Laurel

It has always been the mission of Recovering from Religion to help those struggling with doubt, seeking answers, and moving away from religion and a religious lifestyle. In the 10 years we’ve been helping people, what has become abundantly clear is that getting through this transition and asking these questions isn’t enough. There has to be some light at the end of the tunnel. There has to be joy, community, and fulfillment for people on the other side of doubt and uncertainty. The Recovering from Religion Fall Excursion is for people looking to find their way into that happiness. Our Excursion is set amidst the tranquil mountains of North Carolina in a private venue where attendees can find guidance, friendship, and experience personal growth in a warm and accepting environment. We have planned events and workshops so that you can have fun, learn, relax, and do as little or as much as you like. We will have several trained volunteers as well as mental health specialists onsite to make sure that everyone’s experience is just right for them. All meals and activities are included in the registration and people are free to choose to stay onsite at the lodges or offsite and driving in for the program. Workshops include: -Understanding the Psychology of Religious Infection -Mindfulness -Working Through a Fear of Hell -Creating New Traditions -Secular Sexuality Other Activities Include: -Welcome Tasting and Sampling Reception -Guided Hike -Karaoke Party and BBQ To register and learn more go to: https://www.recoveringfromreligion.org/fall-excursion-2019
