Join an Intensive
Anyone can participate in an Intensive. Participants are not required to have an affiliation with Evoke’s wilderness programs to register. If your child or young adult is part of Wilderness Therapy, we can coordinate your Intensive to occur while your child is enrolled. Descriptions of Evoke’s different Intensives are shown below. For questions or more information, contact our Registration Specialists by phone 866.411.6600 or email.
Finding You is a program offered online or in-person 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. Online and in-person attendees will participate in group processes, meditations, experiential work, and psycho-education lectures lead by one of our therapists. The online programs last two-and-a-half days and the in-person program is four-and-a-half days long.

Finding You 2
In Finding You 2, participants build on the insight and knowledge they gained from their family-of-origin work in Finding You by using it to understand their present-day relationships and challenges. Participants also benefit from psycho-education lectures, meditations, experiential activities, and group processes.

Embracing You provides a safe, healing environment for women of color. Participants will explore core themes beneath their current challenges and dive into what it means to navigate the world as a woman of many shades, while looking at trans-generational trauma. Embracing You explores healing opportunities and what it means to be your authentic Self. This program acknowledges that Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) have experienced trauma that is unique. These experiences may have greater influence on BIPOC when navigating spaces that lack diverse representation. This is a space to not only find parts of you that may have been lost within our social constructs, but to Embrace and Reclaim those parts with other BIPOC.

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.

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.
