Have you ever wondered if the pain of your loss will ever diminish, or if it will continue to haunt you indefinitely?

Do you hesitate to bring up your grief in conversations, fearing it might make others uncomfortable?

When you find yourself replaying conversations or scenarios in your mind, do you wish you had said or done something differently?

Have you noticed a reluctance to let go of belongings or mementos associated with your loss, fearing it will diminish their memory?

Have you ever felt envious of those who seem to have resolved their grief and moved on with their lives?

Have you ever questioned whether it's possible to heal from your grief without addressing the unfinished business tied to it?

This is a space for those who find themselves on the painful journey of grief or loss, and no longer wish to travel alone. When you're ready, you're ready.

This is a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental sanctuary in a community of tenderness and support.

There are many types of grief and loss. We will make space for all types, such as hidden grief or "disenfranchised loss" that includes (but is not limited to):


Death of a cherished loved one

Anticipatory grief, or upcoming loss

Divorce or breakup

Loss of a trusted and dependable loved one (e.g., due to addiction or illness)

Parental estrangement, abandonment, or visitation changes

Socially stigmatized death (e.g., AIDS, suicide, murder, DUI, overdose, etc.)

Death of a pet

Infertility, miscarriage, or abortion

Disabling condition or other health issue

Brain injury, dementia, or cognitive deficit

Loss of safety in family relationships

Loss of an unencumbered childhood

Mental health issue(s)

The grief of the inner child who lives inside of the adult

Moving or loss of a home

Loss of a connection to the self

Job loss or retirement

Explore healing through a unique blend of mindfulness and experiential group techniques designed specifically for those living with hidden grief and "unfinished business" with the past. Engage in gentle introspection as mindfulness practices help cultivate awareness of emotions.

Through light movement (we will get out of our seats), you will be able to creatively express your feelings, foster a deeper understanding of your grief journey, and continue to heal in a supportive environment.

If you experienced a recent or hidden loss -- or at any time in your life -- you are welcome here. This is also a space for those anticipating an upcoming loss.

A safe, supportive, and non-judgmental refuge in a community of tenderness and support.

One group processing session will be offered (via Zoom) in the days following the retreat for all participants.


This retreat/workshop is NOT group therapy but it will be therapeutic. All are welcome.


Light snacks and tea will be served.
