An Intimate Encounter With Grief

The benefits of a bereavement group are the support and connection the group provides during the grieving process. This retreat will offer you an opportunity to tell your story to others who are grieving, identify and work on feelings—particularly the difficult ones of guilt, regret and anger—and honor the legacy of the person you have lost.  

In this safe environment,  you will find commonality and encouragement and learn that you don’t have to grieve in isolation.  Adjusting to life with the “absent presence” of your loved one is a process, and we hope that this retreat will support your movement along this path to healing.
