Questions & Answers

What is Soul Restoration? Is it religious?

It’s a step by step process to finding more joy and peace in your life. It’s amazing, it really is. It is life altering. It is not religious, and I am not acting as a missionary or telling you what to do, or how to do it. It will reunite you with your own faith, though, and your own truth. It will help you figure things out for yourself. It really does work. It’s worked thousands of times in thousands of people, women and men.     You will learn the art of  ‘soul crafting’ (creative art projects, collage, journaling, etc.) including fun & effective methods to help you get unstuck, back on track, and restored to your best self! You will be helped to discern truth from lies…lies that can be holding you back and making you feel less than who you really are…to remember your dreams, your potential, your gifts and talents, all the possibilities and unique answers for your life (because it is different for each of us).

 Soul Restoration is intended to help every woman heal her past, confront old beliefs that have been holding her back, then find and keep the bravery needed to stay joyfully true to her own path. It has been said that every woman could benefit from taking this workshop.

How long has Soul Restoration been around?

Soul Restoration was first launched in 2009, when Melody Ross and Kathy Wilkins started the Brave Girls Club and began offering the curriculum in a camp style environment. Since that time, Melody and Kathy decided because this course is SO important and SO life changing, they decided to certify those who also believed in the value and power of Soul Restoration to share it with others. I’m so excited and honored to be a part of the team!   

What happens at a Soul Restoration Retreat?

This is a retreat style workshop. Investing this time in yourself over a few days allows you to fully embrace and commit to yourself and your important soul work.  We'll enjoy meals together, some quiet reflection time, and lots of music and laughter.  

Together we will work through the curriculum which will include journaling, some discussion around our cherished red carpet (no pressure to share anything you don't want to), and some fun and beautiful soul art.  You don't have to be an artist to enjoy soul art!  In fact, if you can handle a glue stick and some scissors, you'll very much enjoy the collage style art.  Beautiful preprinted inspirational messages, and a few other lovely bits and pieces will come together for your own unique soul art.  

 A big part of the magic and success of Soul Restoration is in the support, love and encouragement shared between our fellow brave Soul Restoring sisters.  Many lifetime friendships have been made at Soul Camp.

Who is this class for, and who is it not for?

  This question is best answered with an excerpt from one of Melody's blog posts about Soul Restoration...here's what she said:

The truth is, while this curriculum was made for every single human on earth, it may not be the right time for you to take it. Be patient, when the time is right, the curriculum will feel right. This class is for every woman, man….everyone…this is just to say that it is not going to work unless you are ready….unless you are sick of how things have been and you are ready to dig in and figure things out. ”

Here's what Kathy Wilkins, the co-founder of Brave Girls Club and sister of Melody's says about this question:    “I strongly believe EVERY PERSON needs to take this course. No matter where you are in your life, no matter what burdens you are carrying or even if you have had a relatively smooth life but need a boost to help you get unstuck and joyfully on to the next chapter in your life, this course is for you.” 

Is Soul Restoration for men, too?

Yes. Because of the nature of the work done in Soul Restoration, it was decided the best format for men to participate in this course was to either take it online, or at a live event facilitated by a male instructor in a camp-like setting. Therefore, at this time, True North Soul Camp is only hosting camps for women. You can find the online course at:  www.bravegirlsclub.ontraport.com/t?orid=23983&opid=27  or check out bravegirlsclub.com for live 1-week camp setting events for men with some truly amazing and dynamic male facilitators. Every man would benefit from investing in himself through this course with other men who want to be the best versions of themselves they can be.  

I'm feeling pretty nervous about this. I'm not sure I want to come without my Sister/Friend/Mom.

No need to fear! I will be with you every step of the way.  Together, we'll go step by step, through a carefully laid out process of discovering your truth and the bravery and strength that’s already within you. I will teach you through a powerful process, but in a gentle, loving and uniquely effective way that ‘fits’ regardless of your beliefs, background, age, gender, or life experiences. We will fast-forward your life beyond the obstacles that have kept you from being where you want to be and experiencing the life you want to live. That said, every woman’s journey is unique and taken at her own pace.    I have personally taken Soul Restoration so I know what I’m asking of you – and why it’s so important for all of us to bravely step into the truth and live the lives we deserve.  I can’t wait to help you dig in and see what is around the corner for you. 

Sometimes women worry about coming to camp alone. I really want to encourage you to come anyway! This is sacred time for yourself.  I pinkie promise you will be okay - better than okay.  Many lifelong friendships have been made at camp. Don't miss out because you need to come alone.  

No need to fear whether you will fit in, or if you’re in the right place, or if it really is meant for people like you.  I can honestly say I worried about all those things when I decided to be brave and go to camp.  I can promise….. you will be safe, you will be in the right place, and it is definitely meant for you -  a life of joy, love, and peace is meant for ALL of us.
