About the Program


Developed by hOMe PYM co-founder Caroline Culverhouse, MSS LCSW, CGP, 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.

Benefits of Participation

Women who have proceeded through the Program say that they:

  • Become happier, healthier, and more resilient by redirecting personal energy towards attuning to the self

  • Find their life's purpose by changing how the past shapes the present

  • Know techniques to stabilize the nervous system that help to mitigate somaticized illness, anxiety, and depressive symptoms over time, while helping them lead a more balanced life

  • Understand themselves better after gaining psychoeducation on trauma, family wounds, attachment, codependency, defense mechanisms, and personality structure

  • Explore ancient holistic wisdom as part of the healing process

  • Connect with a community of women who live a life beyond the surface


Program Format

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 peaceful locations in Reading, PA or at residential retreat centers throughout the United States.
