Fall into Grief Tending Retreat
Join a collective of nature-led, soul-seeking healers for four days and three nights of grief tending, October 17-20, 2024. This is a weekend to be held, nourished and inspired. Find alignment in your being’s natural rhythms through ceremony, mindful play, universe consciousness & nature connection.
No matter who you are, or where you are at on your grief journey, this opportunity is here to hold you where you're at. This retreat is for anyone grieving - whether that's a loss of life, relationship, land, species, trauma or otherwise.
Your expert guides will play on the wants & needs of the group.
What to Expect
It will be a weekend to connect with others to storytell, find commoradorie and be supported. Everything on the agenda is optional, and you'll be able to move into spaces that feel right to you as time evolves. Our team of skilled practitioners will be there for you to lean on for grounding, therapeutic moments (with Jenny), hugs, Reiki (from Krista) or a listening ear. It is time to live in a world where western society normalizes extended periods of time to process grief. These 4 days will create shifts and nudges to honor your grief so that you can move with more effortless flow in your life.
This experience will feel like you're in a liminal space - a space between time and reality. A space of transition. Due to this, we highly recommend taking a day or two off of work after the retreat to reconnect with the usual pace of your everyday life. Doing so will allow you to continue to process it all, while increasing its impact.
Grief often feels... tender.
It needs nurturing, nurishment, support and space to just be.
Grief lives in our entire being - mind, body, spirit.
It can cross lifetimes.
It has a visceral effect on our nervous systems.
Grief tugs differently for each experience and each human.
Grieving is a spectrum.
The process of moving past grief is uniquely defined. Because it can be painful and uncomfortable, it is common to avoid dealing with it. And then all of a sudden, it seeps into pieces of our lives and can cause moments of overwhelm. The feeling of being "stuck" is common after a greif-evoking trauma. No matter who you are, or where you are at in your grieving journey, this opportunity is here to meet & hold you where you're at. This retreat is designed for anyone grieving - whether that's a loss of life, relationship, land, species, trauma or otherwise.
This is a weekend to be held, nourished and inspired. Join a collective of nature-led, soul-seeking healers for four days and three nights of grief tending. Slow down to nourish your mind, body and spirit all the while experiencing the feeling of being "held in a container" of support. Create space for little shifts during the retreat that will ripple into waves of personal growth. Give your whole body a nervous system reset with deep nature connection, yoga, sound healing, somatic grounding exercises, professionally curated farm to table meals, and time spent with people who understand. Let the land help you heal while the facilitation team opens little doors of entry to processing & grief tending.

We know how important this work is, and do not take it lightly. All of us have experienced deep grief in various ways, and regularly lead wellness events on our own, or in collaboration with others. Our personalities effortlessly gel, and it shows when we work together. We bring fun, levity and joy to our work, so be ready to laugh and learn through a bit of play! A thread that connects us is the dependency the four of us experience through extended time in nature. We actively seek it out for optimal health and fulfillment in our personal lives. Additionally, we are all highly intuitive and will be guiding this retreat leaning into that, knowing the agenda may need to shift based on the needs of the group. We are excited to meet you, are honored to be part of your grieving journey, and will be here for you during and even after the retreat is over.
