Loss of a child and the pathway to healing…
August 2020

The Mothers Healing Together Retreat is a weekend gathering for women who have endured the devastating loss of children.  Spending time together gives us an opportunity to share our stories, celebrate our children, learn from one another and develop new coping skills as we continue to walk this path of grief.
This year our retreat will begin on Saturday evening with music, Sunday, August 25th at 9:00 am and conclude after breakfast on Monday August 26th.  Although the program will only be one night, feel free to book additional nights for relaxation and renewal.
