Frequently Asked Questions
The men and women who attend our retreats and groups want to experience truth and grace in a community of like-minded people.

No, this is a series of trainings, groups and exercises to help ignite change through radical honesty and grace. Although anyone may find the teachings, exercises and understandings of this weekend to be useful, neither The Crucible Project, nor those leading the retreats, are engaged in presenting specific medical, psychiatric, psychological, or mental health advice, diagnosis, or treatment. If needed, you should engage in a program of treatment, prevention, cure or general health only in consultation with a licensed, qualified physician, psychiatrist, therapist or other competent professional. Any person suffering from psychiatric issues should consult a mental health professional for help.
As people we carry a lot. We all have wounds from life’s experiences that leave deep scars. Whatever you are facing, you will be welcome at one of our retreats or groups.
You will receive accommodation and meals for the duration of the retreat, participant materials and exercises and trained staff and leaders. Some of the fee goes to the Crucible Project’s overhead costs as well as to enable us to offer scholarships to those experiencing financial hardship.
The retreat has some physically challenging parts to stretch you into new capacities and perspectives. It is not a boot camp or a health and fitness retreat. Safety protocols are always followed and we can accommodate almost everyone at every physical level. You can also pass on any activity that you feel is not right for you.
All participation is voluntary. You are free to decide for yourself what is best, whether to pass on any process or exercise, or leave if you desire. The men and women who persevere tell us that they are glad they did.
We work with men and women to accommodate food allergies and diet restrictions. You will be given the opportunity to indicate any special needs/restrictions on the Health Form that will be asked to complete following registration.
