FULL DAY EDUCATIONAL RETREATS

Autumn 2017  Retreat Series
&  Special Event
Full day educational retreats on the essential work of grief

Step out of ordinary time and space and away from the responsibilities of daily life.  Set in calming natural environments, all retreat days combine soul-care and education.  Venture into your inner landscape and experience the power and renewal of retreat. 

 

Each retreat includes:
 

  • grounding practices to quiet the mind and soothe the nervous system

  • reflective processes and dialogue to access inner wisdom

  • body-centred movement for integration

  • ceremony to mark significant changes in our inner and outer landscapes, and as a vessel for mourning and release

  • space to connect with and be supported by nature

  • a nourishing lunch and snacks

  • social silence (speaking only when necessary) outside of the program sessions
     

Ceremonies, reflective practices, expressive arts, and movement will vary at each retreat.  For a more comprehensive retreat experience, consider registering for more than one retreat.  Group size is intentionally limited.  Early registration is recommended.

See our autumn retreat and special event descriptions and dates below.

By The Fireside

A body and soul care gathering for those who work with people in grief, and those who accrue grief in the course of their work.

 

In order to be available to support others in sorrow, we need places to tend to our own.  Become grounded in yourself through self-exploration, body-centred movement and focused dialogue with other caregivers.  By working with reflective tools, connect and nurture sources of healing and wisdom within.  Clarify what supports and prevents you in moving into and through grief.  Take time to mourn.   Designed for renewal and the cultivation of self-compassion.

 At the end of the day, this retreat includes an opportunity to care for your body and deepen relaxation through an onsite sauna and/or to spend more time being supported by and connected to nature in this stunning landscape.
