What to Expect at Well Women Workshops
How large will the workshop be?
Each Well Women Workshop is limited to a maximum of 20 participants.
What can I expect from this workshop?
Individual counseling or coaching is incredibly valuable, but Shannon feels that group experiences provide an avenue for healing like nothing else! Because we’ve most often been wounded in relationship, we also experience the most healing in relationship.
Here, you’ll develop deeper-than-normal friendships with other women who have attended their own Women at the Well Workshop before. These are strong women who are not afraid to take off their masks, get real about their life experiences, discern what changes they are ready to make, and learn whole new ways of relating — with God, with men, and with themselves. You’ll learn about many helpful tools and resources and experience powerful coaching exercises designed to help you manage negative emotions (such as fear, anger, sadness, guilt, shame, etc.) and addictive patterns of relating (or not relating).
Expect laughter, tears, peace, joy, and freedom as sexual and emotional baggage from the past is unpacked, and hope for your future is cultivated. Above all, we want you to be able to engage with the group on the deepest of levels, without fear of judgment. This intensive workshop is a safe place, and your personal comfort and confidentiality will remain our top concern. Like the original Women at the Well (in John 4), we want you to have a personal, truth-filled encounter with Jesus Christ that truly transforms your life!
How much does the workshop cost?
Fee is $995 (payable in monthly payments if desired). Workshop materials and healthy meals each day are included. Participants are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses, but costs can be minimized if you’d like to stay with the group onsite (more on that below).
What airport would I need to fly into?
Springfield, Missouri Workshop
*Springfield-Branson National Airport (SGF)- Springfield, Missouri. We will provide transportation to/from the airport such that a rental car isn’t necessary unless you prefer to stay at a hotel or local Airbnb, or just want the freedom to explore the area on your own.
What lodging is available?
The workshop takes place in Shannon & Charlie’s home in Fair Grove, Missouri, just outside of Branson. Onsite lodging is available for up to 12 participants for a donation to the Women at the Well Workshop Scholarship Fund (suggested donation $75 per person per night for a private room, $50 per person per night for a shared room). We would be happy to match you with a roommate to reduce lodging costs if desired. Also, if you prefer to stay independently at a hotel or local Airbnb, email firstname.lastname@example.org for some recommendations.
Shannon has this uncanny ability to push you just enough. Get you just uncomfortable enough. Challenge you just enough. But not so much, if you are willing to trust the process and her and God through her, that you won’t be better for it. I was stretched farther this time, spiritually, than I have been, I think ever.– Amy
When I signed up for Women at the Well, I hated my body, and hated sex. If I could’ve lived life without sex, I would’ve been one happy camper! But, I knew that my husband would not be happy with that decision! So, I flew to Texas leaving my husband and four kids at home. After four days of trusting other women with all my deep, dark secrets, I was able to start my healing process. I left my baggage in Texas and came home so much lighter!
I have been able to look in the mirror in a different way. I am starting to see myself as a beautiful woman of God! And by seeing myself as beautiful, I am allowing my husband to see me as well! We are like newlyweds and enjoying each other in a way that we never have in our 12 years of marriage! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to experience such an amazing life-changing workshop!
This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! You will face all of your negative emotions that drive you into unhealthy places, and discover joy as you journey toward freedom. The atmosphere that Shannon creates is one of full acceptance and trust. With the help of all the women I was able to share my dark secrets and was not condemned. Actually, through their help, I was able to make connections to my past that explained my actions and feelings that I have today. It truly felt like I was sitting in the presence of Christ just like the woman at the well in the Bible. There was love and concern for me, understanding of my struggles and support to overcome those struggles. This workshop has given me the tools I need to overcome and find freedom!– Michele
When I first sat down and looked at the women around me participating in this program, I was filled with uncertainty and fear. What would they think of me? What would they think of my sinful past and the way I still struggled with sexual dysfunction? Those fears were quickly relieved as we spent time learning each other’s story, and allowing God to work through each of us – bringing healing and hope in us all. I can now say I walk in freedom from my sexual issues and truly believe my identity in Christ and God’s love for me. I’m thankful for the grace-filled, honest environment this program provided to help usher in those needed heart changes.– Lindsey
