Honoring the Seasons of Our Grief

Grief and loss are a part of life and can be catalysts for self-awareness and growth.

This day-long retreat is for adults who are grieving the loss of a loved one, friend or co-worker recently or years ago. 

Together we will explore how the natural patterns of the grieving experience relate to the natural rhythms and changes of the seasons.  The day will include reflection, sharing, prayer and meditation.


Saturday, October 2, 2021


The cost of $60 includes $20 non-refundable deposit, handouts, and mid-day meal.

Partial scholarships are available; please inquire.
