Healing Loss Through Conscious Grieving and Writing

March 10, 2023 - March 12, 2023

A Weekend Retreat with Lisa Irish

Begins Friday, March 10 with 4:00 p.m. check in, ending after lunch on March 12, 2023

Cost: Single Occupancy $425; Double $375
Overnight accommodations include rooms with ensuite bath and meals: Friday dinner through Sunday lunch.

How do we heal from loss? We grieve. Our bodies, minds and hearts are created to process loss of all kinds through a sacred journey of grieving. A significant resource on that journey is writing. Putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) opens our heart in new ways and supports our desire to heal. This new overnight retreat will offer a safe space for reflection, writing, sharing and stillness. As you give voice to your loss and allow time for your grief, you take brave steps toward hope and healing.

No writing experience is needed.
