Healing Takes Time
Fall Retreat

Due to health and safety concerns surrounding Covid-19, we are hosting a virtual retreat this fall. Even though we won’t meet face- to-face, this online retreat offers an uplifting experience to help those suffering from the loss of a loved one find hope and healing in their grief journey. Retreat includes: Live streaming presentations by guest speakers. Speaker panel with question/answer opportunity. Small group sharing among participants with similar type of loss. A care package with all of the items you need for the retreat, plus special gifts to bring you comfort. Small Group breakout sessions will be held for several types of loss. Groups will be led by those who have experienced the same loss, and understand what you are going through.

Breakout sessions include:

       • Loss of Child                                        • Pregnancy or Infant Loss
• Loss of Spouse                                     • Loss through Suicide

“Transitions in Grieving”

After 23 years of marriage, Sharon became a widow at the age of 45 when her husband, Jim, died unexpectedly. Upon retirement from her law practice, she obtained Spiritual Direction training and certification from the University of San Diego. Since then she has provided spiritual counseling and support to both individuals and groups. Concurrent with this pandemic she has walked alongside a friend whose husband died by suicide in mid February. In that experience she explored new dimensions of her own grief journey. She lives in San Diego, CA.
