Honoring Our Grief
Circle of Trust Retreat®

Grief Retreat
A friend, referring to the slams and waves of grief, most of them come out of nowhere, randomly.  You're just driving along.  Or doing any mundane thing.  Then - boom - a wave of profound grief slams you. You want to double over.  You can't breathe.  Often the antecedent is not even apparent.  Other times it's like a fog settling back in after lifting for some period of time.

The walk through grief is a journey through an unknown forest for the path that is never the same even though the ground might feel familiar. We are destined to walk the journey in part alone aware of deep grief, sadness and our personal loss known only to ourselves. And yet, we are never alone. When we find the strength to look up and breathe we notice others on our path and on their own path finding their way in the forest of grief searching for the strength to face into a new day.

In grief we are invited to discover our wounds and our wonder. Grief is a highly individual, non- linear process that holds the possibility of transformation.  Grief is often an intense emotional response to whomever we have lost or whatever we have lost.  Grief must be processed by each person in his/her individual story.  Grief that is not processed often leaves an individual stuck in the past with little hope.

The power of a safe community, which this retreat will provide, invites the wounded soul to show up and experience the healing power of grief.

Join us, join others for a time to sit together "in solitude and in community" as we gather for this Circle of Trust® retreat at Kirkridge, March 22-24 in Bangor PA.  Supporting one another and allowing for our own process we will remind ourselves that while grief is the price of love it does not have the final word in our lives.  

To live in this world
you must be able
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it
against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go. - Mary Oliver

Resilient, Persistent, & Enduring
Stories to Grow Our Souls

Heros Journey Story Retreat
Our lives are guided by the stories we tell ourselves, and by the stories we are told by others.

Each of us has a wealth of stories which we can use to better communicate our dreams, our history, and our culture.  We can share our stories to persuade, to advocate and to educate, as well as give ourselves and our listeners joy.  When you share your story, you grow your soul and give yourself strength for the journey.
During our lifetimes, each of us has faced times of doubt, fear, exhaustion, or humiliation.  Yet we find a way to go on.  Over the course of the weekend we will identify strengths that carry us forward, as well take the time to explore our experiences of feeling both lost and found.  We will strengthen our abilities to lift our voice, center our breath while at the same time map our journey through its trials, learning gates, crises and resolutions.
We learn to make a new way out of no way.  Using the template provided by the Hero's Journey, we will learn to tell the tale of our own heroic journeys to give ourselves and each other courage and strength for the way.

May 3-5 in Bangor, PA
