Online Finding You is a three-day program for individuals with some therapy experience who may feel stuck or could benefit from a therapeutic accelerator. It can also serve as a springboard for those new to therapy, looking for some direction as they begin their work. Individuals may participate in group processes, meditations, experiential work, and psycho-education lectures lead by one of our therapists. Our online program offers connection and resources during this time of uncertainty. Our aim is to practice physical distancing while remaining socially connected. These online programs consist of live group sessions.
In-Person Finding You is a four-day program for individuals with some therapy experience who may feel stuck or could benefit from a therapeutic accelerator. It can also serve as a springboard for those new to therapy, looking for some direction as they begin their work.

Quotes From Past Participants:
The Evoke Family Intensive Weekend was a life-changing event. For four days we (husband, wife, and son) worked on our personal issues, delved into family of origin connections with behavior, learned communication skills, and knocked down the walls we used to hide our deepest selves. The end result was better family communication and a depth of self-knowledge that brought us closer together. We left feeling exhausted and exhilarated. The three of us salute Brad [Reedy] for facilitating this remarkable weekend.
— In-Person Intensive Participant
I am so glad I participated in the Online Intensive. I am surprised at how much I noticed about myself during and after the weekend. While reflecting on the weekend, more realizations continue to come to me about myself and about the relationships in my life.
