Apr 20th 2018-By the Fireside

By The Fireside

Enhance your well-being, slow-down and turn inward.  To care for others, we need places to care for ourselves. By the Fireside is a daylong retreat for professional or family caregivers.  

Receive a day of self-care in a soul-nourishing retreat environment.  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 integrating self-care into daily life.    Designed for renewal and the cultivation of self-compassion.

At the end of the day, this retreat date can include an evening thermal spa experience

at  Amerispa-Cantley.

Feb 25 - safeTALK Training

safeTALK Training

suicide alertness for everyone

Subsidized by the Mill Road Community Space, Chelsea, Que.

We don't always recognize in our own community that there are people from youth to seniors who may be struggling with thoughts of suicide.  It is more common than we'd like to think.  Statistics tell us for every 20 people in your community, there is one person who is having thoughts of suicide.

 

Help your community become a suicide safer community. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive.

Despair Unveiled

It’s common in grief to experience a loss of purpose and feelings of despair.  This can lead to thoughts of suicide.  A day to explore concepts and fears related to despair and suicide within a supportive structure and the role of the dark emotions in generating new life.  Discover ways to access support within yourself to inspire and sustain you through challenging periods.

DEC 2-Hidden Sorrow Sacred Ground

Hidden Sorrow Sacred Ground

Some losses are kept in the shadows, either because they are unseen or perceived as unacceptable, shameful, or unworthy of grief.  Some expressions of mourning are judged and shut down.  A gathering to honour hidden sorrows and your right to mourn.

At the end of the day, this retreat date can include an evening thermal spa experience

at  Amerispa-Cantley.

The Terrain of

Grief and Mourning

The faces of grief are many: death, relationship loss, loss of home or homeland, health and job losses, severence from ancestral stories and rituals, sorrow for the degradation of the earth and more.

Pause, connect, learn about the natural, necessary process of grief and mourning.  Receive tools to attend to the large and small losses that touch each of our lives and a supportive process to honour the needs of grief.   Experience the new vitality that happens when the pain of loss is welcomed rather than avoided or resisted.
