Women's Healing & Transformation Program
About the Program
Developed by hOMe PYM co-founder Caroline Culverhouse, MSS LSW, E-RYT the Women's Healing & Transformation Program is a holistic psychotherapy treatment that aids women in the process of personal transformation.
It combines somatic & experiential methods to integrate the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual aspects of human experience, providing a safe space for women to heal core wounds and original pain.
The Program catalyzes growth in women seeking deeper healing as an adjunct to traditional talk therapy or mentorship with a trusted adviser or coach. Participants emerge with an expanded worldview that acknowledges past trauma while providing for a bright, hopeful future.
Over 130 women have participated in the program since its foundation in 2013.

Participants progress through the Program in an outpatient retreat-style setting over the course of two to six years. Retreats range from three to seven days.
Each part of the program progresses women through a different stage in the complex path of healing. The parts have optional supplements that deepen the experience, such as mentorship, psychotherapy groups, or workshops.
Women self-pace through the program depending on personal preference and therapeutic progress. Average length of completion is three years.
Retreats take place at the peaceful hOMe PYM retreat campus in Reading, PA or at residential retreat centers throughout the United States.
