This supportive retreat and pilgrimage offers many experiential opportunities to heal the betrayal trauma wounds that occur due to infidelity from pornography use, masturbation, affairs, or other dishonest sexual behaviors.  Join a small group of women for an immersive healing experience combining psychoeducational understandings, neurobiological insights, and mental health therapeutic activities, with Catholic faith focused transformational prayer times.  This comprehensive and compassionate approach is designed to lead women to the healing that Jesus offers to the broken-hearted.  This retreat is for women at any stage of discovery or recovery.   Come to the Zechariah House for a respite and retreat to catch your breath and rest while being nourished mind, body, and soul.  We will navigate alongside you in your healing journey.  Take some time away from home, away from the triggers, and away from your responsibilities to focus on healing as you face the painful effects of betrayal trauma.   The Zechariah House is a place where women can experience rest, resources, and support while encountering hope, help, and healing. 

This 4-day retreat and pilgrimage starts Thursday at 1:00 pm and will end at noon on Sunday following Mass at the Shrine or you may join us for lunch at a restaurant (at your own expense) and a visit to the National Shrine of St. Joseph. The retreat fee includes 3 overnight accommodations, a professional chair massage, 3 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 3 dinners, and snacks at Zechariah House Retreat Center. Also included is transportation to and from the National Shrine of Our Lady of Champion, the only approved apparition site of the Blessed Mother in the United States, and the National Shrine of St. Joseph in De Pere, Wisconsin. (To learn more about these shrines, visit: and today!) You may also book additional respite days at Zechariah House before or after retreat.

The NAVIGATE Outdoor Adventure - Encounter with Wolves, Deer, and Bison is for everyone on the retreat. You may participate at whatever level of engagement you desire. During this animal assisted therapy time, you will learn about facing your fears, boundaries, respect, expanding your comfort zone, and new coping skills.

Retreat Leaders:

Jeannie Hannemann, M.A., the founder of NAVIGATE Betrayal, will be the Retreat Director.  She has been ministering with betrayed women for over 40 years.  Along with professional training, her personal story of journeying through her husband’s compulsive use of pornography and recovery gives her unique abilities to provide encouragement and compassionate guidance to betrayed wives.

She has a very extensive background in addressing trauma, anxiety, stress, grief and depression.  As our Retreat Mental Health Facilitator, she will help us explore practical, healthy ways to calm, release, and regulate emotions.
