A grief retreat is a supportive space to restore hope after loss. It brings together people with a common experience, to gather in a calm and peaceful environment without the demands and distractions of daily life. While everyone’s experience in grief is different, it is helpful to connect those with a similar loss and shared experience, to work through these feelings together. To share stories, build trust, learn coping skills, and practice self-care. Many of our retreats will be centred around a specific type of loss or a certain group of people with similar challenges. Whatever loss you’re experiencing, it is not magically healed with time. There isn’t this inexplicable closure that sweeps in and neatly packages up this devastating loss for you. Grief needs attention, it needs to be experienced, witnessed, and shared. Surviving (and even thriving) in grief takes time, yes, but also work, energy, commitment, determination, strength, and help from others. The path through grief is just that: through. Not over or around, but through. That’s what we’re here for: to see you through.
