22nd Annual Heart of Forgiveness Retreat – 2023

November 9-12, 2023 in Hurricane, Utah

The Heart of Forgiveness Retreat
with Psychotherapist Gregg Unterberger &
Intuitive Life Coach and Medium Colleen Vanderzyden


There is an old saying: Holding a grudge is like setting yourself on fire and hoping the other person dies of smoke inhalation.

Many of us underestimate what role holding grievances in our lives – a lack of forgiveness – plays in our unhappiness.

Low self-esteem?
Maybe we are vicious to ourselves and can’t forgive ourselves for our prior mistakes.
Forgiveness is the answer.

Keep self-sabotaging yourself because at an organic level you feel like you don’t deserve happiness?
Forgiveness is the answer.

Betrayed by a romantic partner and seemingly can’t get over the injustices they did?
Forgiveness is the answer. (But that doesn’t mean you have to remarry them!)

Depressed and made hopeless by a crazy world?
Forgiveness is the answer. (And no, you don’t have to give up standing up for what is right.)

But something else seems to block our capacity to forgive.

If only we knew.

We can find out.

Dr. Fred Luskin reminds us that forgiveness is a choice, but it waits on readiness. How would we develop readiness? What block would we have to let go of, to allow ourselves to be ready? Haven’t we suffered enough? Isn’t it time?

For over 20 years, every fall, Gregg has met annually with different constellations of heartfelt seekers, ready to move ahead into a new freedom. They have cried, raged, prayed and typically took giant leaps of healing in four days. We have seen adult children and their parents make amends, patients with terminal illness make peace with their death, couples on the brink of divorce reconcile, and bitter, abused “outsiders’ discover their worth through the love they’ve seen in the eyes of their fellow workshop participants.

The goal for our attendees is not merely that they understand the mechanics of forgiveness, but to taste the joy and freedom of releasing agonizing grievances. And they leave with the knowledge that they will not become doormats, but more vibrant, happy individuals, unburdened of their painful past. 

We welcome your participation in this wonderful and liberating adventure! You will not make the journey alone!

Join us for four days in Hurricane, Utah, the “Gateway to Zion,” surrounded by 3000-foot brilliantly colored walls at the height of the fall color change as we directly experience learning to forgive ourselves and others. We will meet about four hours each day allowing you ample time to explore the majesty of Zion in your car or on foot, shop the quaint, unique boutiques, play golf or simply lounge in the hot tub.

The workshop will be held at the new Sleep Inn & Suites, rated 4.7 stars on TripAdvisor, just minutes from the national park. We think you will find the awesome splendor and mystery of Zion a powerful ally in your spiritual journey.
