Journey to Freedom

As a Certified Experiential Therapist, I never cease to be amazed by the physical, emotional and spiritual healing that occurs at Hound Hollow. My joy is to observe and marvel in the miracles that unfold with each new Journey to Freedom." Lois Thomson-BowersocK, CET II

Lois Thomson-Bowersock has been leading the Journey to Freedom Experiential Therapy Programs since 1998. Her private retreat facility, Hound Hollow is located on 24 acres of lakefront property near Crockett, in the Piney Woods Region of East Texas. This modern facility offers all the comforts of home, as well as a serene location that is both relaxing and ideal for the transforming experiences generated in the Journey to Freedom Experiential Therapy Program.

Hound Hollow has become a place of healing and growth. Each Journey to Freedom is as different and unique as the individuals who immerse themselves in the process to discover their own paths to an enriched life. The Journey to Freedom Experiential Therapy Program is typically designed to run two days and evenings, and is limited to a maximum of six participants in order to optimize the quality of care. Custom program times can be arranged, depending upon the specific needs of the participants. Personalized programs can also be scheduled for couples or families desiring to engage in their own private, unique Journey to Freedom experience.

Success Stories

"I had the unique experience of attending the Journey to Freedom weekend program and was thrilled with the outcome. Lois and her team of facilitators quickly made me feel at ease and welcome. The lake setting was ideal for promoting a sense of serenity and relaxation - a breath of fresh air from the city environment and perfect for finding oneself. Through a series of exercises and conversations, I was able to achieve clarity into my current state of mind. With this clarity established, I received solutions for handling the challenges of everyday life. I am very grateful to Lois and her team for this opportunity, and I highly recommend this Journey to Freedom Experiential Program to anyone seeking insight into their thoughts, feelings and actions." Participant

"I came to the Journey to Freedom carrying grief and anger inside of me. Lois found ways of getting to the pain and helped me express it. When I left there, I felt as if I left so much of my "baggage" at Hound Hollow. I felt relieved. It was as if my husband and I had months of therapy compacted into one weekend." Participant

"I whole heartedly recommend the Journey to Freedom. Lois is a remarkable counselor with wit, wisdom, creativity and compassion. Thanks to her, we got through a very difficult part of our lives. We were truly blessed to have found Lois." Participant
