Five miles from the resort are hundreds of shops, numerous theaters offering live show & entertainment, water sports, and theme parks. StoneBridge units are conveniently close to a wealth of Branson attractions and points of interest like Table Rock Lake, shopping, dining and the world-famous live entertainment district. This property features three outdoor pools, basketball and tennis courts, and sand volleyball courts, a playground, and walking paths around the beautiful community lake.

Golfers also love our Ledgestone Golf Course – a championship 18-hole golf course, with the Ledgestone Clubhouse, Pro Shop, Ledgestone Grille, exercise facility, dining room, business center and 3 meeting rooms.

      Brave Heart Review

    When Jill first encouraged me to attend a Brave Heart retreat my automatic response was that of anxiety and the belief this concept was not in the parameters of my comfort zone. As I witnessed Jill‘s passion and anticipation of the upcoming retreat and more information was presented I reconsidered. Maybe that is what I must do- step outside the parameters of my comfort zone. I began to feel that was exactly what I needed to do in order to pursue a different avenue of healing trauma - one I hadn’t explored before- drama therapy. The idea of getting up in front of a group of people and working through my issues was frightening at first. Immediately there was a camaraderie with the other women. I felt completely safe and comfortable to share parts of my story. I was so moved with the kindness, compassion, and support that my inhibition dissipated being in such accepting environment. I had a sense of belonging and felt a freedom to open up in ways I have never imagined before. The atmosphere was so comfortable relaxed and welcoming. I felt such a privilege to have Dr. Laura Wood as facilitator. Both Dr. Wood and Jill are gifted communicators with extraordinary level of compassion and intuitive caring that provided me a process to move toward healing while also feeling safe. That experience was profound for me. The next year there was no hesitation to sign up. I was excited about continuing unraveling the the layers of trauma. Being at the retreat enabled me to take my health and wellness to a higher level and equip me to empower myself to make some powerful changes in my life. I totally endorse the professional and integrity of Jill Reynolds. With her depth of concern and care for others wellness she brings a high level of experience to succeed in the event she plans.

      Overcoming Copendency

    Although I was not totally convinced I needed to attend a Brave Heart Workshop, I went to be with and support my daughter. I came home a different person, having recognized my codependency issues and was given tools to help me change. This change has been permanent! Jill Reynolds knows how to put a workshop together from beginning to end and she made my experience one of lasting value. Brave Heart Workshops have amazing wellness retreats that change lives. I highly recommend everyone attend these retreats.

      Insightful learning experiences

    Both Of the Brave Heart Workshops I attended were great experiences for me, opening up a door to some issues from my past I was unaware of before. It was challenging, but one of the most enlightening opportunities of my life! I discovered the root of my trauma and was able to take home what I learned in the workshop and fully heal, conquer my fears, and confront major obstacles in my life. I learned about my strength, my desires, my needs, and my true authentic self. I am now a social worker and therapist practicing from a place of solidarity, clarity, and a grounded foundation. I found my voice and my freedom. I feel so blessed, grateful, inspired and hopeful that others can do the same through Jill’s workshops.

      Freeing

    I have attended two Brave Heart Workshops — an incredible experience both times. Jill has so much experience with different modalities of personal wellness, which makes her retreats so successful. I have personally enjoyed the drama therapy workshop weekends- which have brought much clarity and freedom to my own journey. Jill has a heart and a passion for wellness in body, mind, and spirit, coupled with the skills to make these workshops run efficiently. She balances therapeutic story and body-work with time and space for effective rest, reflection, and rejuvenation.

      Amazing workshop!

    Last July, I had the pleasure of attending one of the Braveheart Workshop retreats held in Nashville, Tennessee. The organizer was Jill Reynold. The facilitator was Dr. Laura Wood. It was a great experience. I got to experience Drama Therapy. It was an unforgettable experience, truly. Not only did I get a chance to visit Nashville, the city of music, but also, and more importantly, I got to experience Drama Therapy and heal my childhood traumas. Jill was super responsible and caring. She helped to arrange hotels, flights, transportation, meals and took us to concerts. She had an eye to discover talents. Because Dr. Wood was one of the most intuitive and skilled therapists as I discovered over the course of the weekend. The healing work was transformative and fun at the same time. The combination of performance and healing really made it much less intimidating and more spontaneous. I truly enjoyed the workshop and recommends it to anyone who has an interest in personal healing or psychology in general.

      It's a nice weekend

    So do you have something getting in your way? Well work through it with psycho drama therapy. With a trained therapist guiding you. Check it out ! I did twice! Maybe a third???

      Brave Heart Workshops Breakthough Healing

    Brave Heart Workshops. Jill kept encouraging me to attend a weekend retreat. I had some trepidation, not fully knowing what it was about. In addition, i was not in a place where i had enough money to go. Jill provided me a partial scholarship that allowed me to go. The weekend was such a breakthrough - truly Life Changing! For all ages - I am in my 50’s, and my healing journey catapulted onto an entirely new & powerful path. Colleen O
