Rachel mourns her children; she refuses to be consoled because her children are no more.
Thus says the Lord: Cease your cries of mourning. Wipe the
tears from your eyes. The sorrow you have shown shall have its reward.
There is hope for your future.

       Jeremiah 31:15-17

An introduction to Rachel's Vineyard Retreat
Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat is a journey of spiritual healing to help women and men overcome the painful effects of an abortion experience. The retreat offers a sanctuary in which to renew, rebuild and redeem hearts broken by abortion in a safe, supportive, confidential and non-judgmental environment. Retreats are held in both Catholic and Interdenominational settings. The leaders include a highly trained team of facilitators, including a qualified counsellor, a spiritual guide and a priest.
This video was made for Open Doors Melbourne where the retreat is conducted regularly. It explores the retreat through the eyes of participants and facilitators.
 This video has been produced for Open Doors by the highly regarded documentary film-maker, DON PARHAM of PARHAM MEDIA.  Parham has also made a television documentary, THE CHOICE, about the complexities and consequences of abortion (produced for SBS-TV).  THE CHOICE is ideal for educational use by schools, churches and community groups and is available on DVD. It can be purchased online from Parham Media here or go to – www.parham-media.com
