Living with Loss – The Journey Continues

20–24 April 2020 (Mon–Fri)

This is the second in a series of supported retreats for those coping with life-changing loss following bereavement, and is again a gentle environment in which to explore grief in the company of others. We will continue themes from the first retreat, including understanding grief and the mosaic of life, and delve further into what could be obstacles to our journey forward. There will be a range of activities, led sessions, discussions, crafts, and times of reflection and remembrance.

(Please note that this retreat is a follow-up and only open to those who have already attended a Living with Loss retreat led by Abi May. This should be checked at the time of booking.)
