Q) Is this a church related retreat?

A) No. This retreat will combine a mixture of mindful exercises, real life stories, interjections of our own spirituality, and a bit of woo-woo-ness. We have designed this retreat for people of all faiths, religions, and those without any religious affiliations. We respect each of your journeys and beliefs and ask that you do the same of the other attendees as well.


Q) My husband passed away a few years ago, will I still find this relevant?

A) Yes, What we have found is that grief is cyclical. It will loop back and around us in various forms and levels of intensity for decades to come. Our goal is to present information in an open and honest way so you can see what patterns may still be unfolding in your life as well as gain inspiration and knowledge to use your grief to fulfill goals and dreams you may have.


Q) What should I bring with me to the retreat?

A) We will provide lunch and a place to feel safe as you explore your feelings, memories, and new learning. Depending on the weather you may want to bring a sweater or shawl, a snack if you’d like, and a bottle of water.

A) No, this is an in-person retreat. W


Q) Can I bring my guy friend with me to this retreat?
