Healing and transforming our grief is a journey, not a destination. The journey into healing asks us to weave our losses into the fabric of our lives. To do that, we need tools. This retreat will provide you with tools and insights for the healing journey.
Those who have suffered the death of a loved one may struggle to find their way. Many people experience grief as a heavy weight on their heart and physical body, that can feel overwhelming and exhausting. Where can we go to deal with this weight? Who wants to listen to our pain?
A Time Apart retreat at Rolling Ridge provides a soothing, healing, nurturing environment and time away from the stress of the world. An opportunity to go deeper into our experience, with support and guidance, to explore, honor and learn from the grief process.
Programming includes: Time by the fire, music, journaling, expressive art therapy, sacred movement, opportunities for massage and Reiki, mindfulness practice, contemplative silence, time in nature, walking in the woods, by the Lake or at the labyrinths.
