Limited to 25 participants.
Are you feeling overwhelmed by a personal loss? Are you feeling anxious about the uncertainties of our global crises? These experiences need not result in despair or helplessness.
In a supportive community, the experience of grieving can be made conscious and empowering. We can intentionally open to the unexpected gifts of meaning, joy, and purpose inherent in what we most dread.
We invite you to become part of an exploration of community grieving. Together we will delve deeper into what particular aspects of grief are heartbreaking to each of us. Throughout, we will learn to involve nature in our healing process, as well as share deeply our grief within the container of everyone’s support.
This weekend will be facilitated by Carolyn Baker and Terry Chapman. Carolyn’s life’s work and passion have been dedicated to discovering the sacred depths of all of life’s transitions. Carolyn was a psychotherapist in private practice for 17 years and is currently a life coach. Terry is a Clergy and Spiritual Director with over 30 years of walking with people through life’s transitions. As experienced retreat leaders Carolyn and Terry weave together the processes of grieving into a beautiful communal tapestry of healing and transformation.
