Breakup Bootcamp: The Science of Rewiring Your Heart - Amy Chan
I’m still in a relationship, will I benefit from coming?

Approximately 30% of the participants who come to Renew are in an on-again, off-again relationship. They are in the gray zone of indecision which causes much self-doubt, anxiety about the future and fear of making the wrong decision. These women have found that Renew helped provide the strength and tools to leave an unhealthy relationship and there have been some cases where women have later on reunited with their partner, but from an empowered, grounded place and thus the connection was a completely different experience. The retreat is not about the person you are dating or your ex – it’s about YOU. The common denominator in your experiences is you – and our team helps you discover the wounds, subconscious patterns and limiting beliefs that are holding you back from creating the life and love you need and desire.

Am I too old / too young to come?

We’ve had women from age 23 to 72 come to Renew. Women come from all over the world, with different backgrounds, situations and ages attend Renew with one thing in common – they want change. They are ready to rewire old patterns and start their next chapter empowered, inspired and excited. They know there is more out there for them and they are ready to shift. Your age doesn’t matter, your desire to create change for yourself does. A breakup is often a great catalyst for change and causes people to re-evaluate what’s working and what’s not. Once you’ve arrived at the decision that you want to move forward, the team at Renew can help provide the tools and guide you, however, we cannot teach someone to want to change. Don’t ask if you’re too young or too old, ask yourself if you’re tired of living the same pain of the past and want to create positive change in your life.

Will I be healed after one weekend?

Anything that promises to be a quick fix to transformation or enlightenment is a lie. Nobody can heal you, only you can heal yourself. Renew’s team of facilitators are the best of the best in their areas of expertise, and will help guide you through a process of healing, we will provide tools rooted in science, psychology and spirituality to help you emotionally regulate, reframe and rewire. However, once you have the knowledge, you are responsible for practicing what you learn to turn your knowledge into wisdom. Our intention is to provide you a variety of tools so you can create your own toolkit to use when you’re back in daily life, to help you identify limiting beliefs and patterns and show you how to reframe and rewire, and enable you to experience an adventure of self-discovery in a safe and nurturing environment.

Do I need to attend all three days of the bootcamp?

In order to attend Renew Breakup Bootcamp (physical or virtual retreats), you must be able to commit to attending all three days and all sessions. We do not record sessions and it’s important to experience the program in its entirety for maximum impact, and to be accountable to the group.

When will there be physical retreats again?

Due to the pandemic, we have paused physical retreats until further notice. Once it’s safe to gather again, we will continue our physical retreat offering, and will also continue our virtual bootcamp offering. We do not anticipate hosting a physical retreat in 2021.

What is the schedule?

Please refer to the Virtual Breakup Bootcamp page to see the schedule details. Note that participants commit to attending each session and the Friday and Sunday evening session is optional.

Is there support after the retreat?

After the retreat, you will have access to a private Facebook group for the Renew community and you will also be a part of a Whatsapp group for the women of your specific retreat. Many women choose to continue private sessions with some of the facilitators, and that is completely up to you. We plan to launch group coaching soon.

I go to therapy already, should I bother coming to Renew?

You will find that Renew is impactful because you are completely immersed in a variety of healing modalities. This is very different from talking to a therapist once every while with weeks in between. Renew is not a replacement of any therapy, training or medication you are currently taking, it should be seen as complementary.

Do you offer financial assistance?

If you would like to attend the Virtual Breakup Bootcamp but are struggling financially, please contact us. We will do what we can to help.

Is there a retreat for men?

Currently our retreat is for women only. We are working on a men’s version that will be launched in the future.

Does my sexual orientation matter?

We welcome women of any sexual orientation.

Is the bootcamp private?

All participants that come to Renew must sign a privacy agreement before coming to the retreat. Participants are not allowed to record any of the sessions or disclose any private details of the bootcamp or participants.

Is a virtual bootcamp as effective as a physical one?

We’ve had nothing but positive reviews of our virtual bootcamp. Many individuals expressed that they felt more comfortable being able to participate at home. If you are curious about the experience, we can connect you to someone who’s attended the virtual breakup bootcamp who can share their experience with you.

Can I send a friend?

Many people have gifted the Renew retreat to a friend or family member.

Are there private sessions?

Private sessions are available at an additional cost.

I’m feeling scared about attending. Is this normal?

Often the hardest part of the ending of a relationship, is not the relationship itself, it’s the ending of a pattern. The biggest decision you will make is commitment to change – and it’s completely normal for you to feel fear about that. Human beings like what is familiar – even if that familiar is painful. The unknown can feel so overwhelming or scary that it causes a person to stay in the situation they are in – even if they are unhappy, because the risk of the unknown is too much. Know that this a mental trap, and that growth occurs outside the comfort zone. If you’re not getting the results you want doing what you are doing now, and likely have been doing for a long time, then it’s time to try something new. It’s okay to feel fear, but that fear doesn’t own you. You get to choose.

What is the application process?

We sell out each retreat as we keep the group small and intimate. While we required an application process and interview for our physical retreats, we do not require this for the virtual breakup bootcamp.
