forces us to change our lives, and ourselves. Taking time to reevaluate, pray, and truly comprehend what has happened
is a vital part of this process.
A retreat is an opportunity to
completely immerse yourself in healing with no distraction, in a relaxing, supportive and positively charged atmosphere with
others who are in different stages of grief themselves. Obviously,the longer retreats are more intensive and productive to

Our "by the sea" grief retreats offer not just an escape from the pain, but actual healing
from grief. When we begin healing, we can live again.
