Roadblocks to Healing Life's Losses

This retreat has been cancelled.  If you are registered, you will receive an e-mail.

Sometimes, consciously or unconsciously, we place roadblocks in our movement toward healing in grief.  These roadblocks can be subtle or downright blatant ways of hindering and impeding our growth, our becoming, our finding and living life fully again after loss.

During this day-long retreat we will explore some commonly used self-defeating behaviors which stifle reconciling our losses and will unfold some healthy practices that are essential to healing life’s losses.

This day is appropriate for those grieving a loss as well as those who companion them.
