Grief Retreats

Since 2009, we have walked with thousands of people who have experienced devastating losses in their lives – loss of children, grandchildren, parents, siblings, friends, suicide losses; and non-death losses such as divorce, children with drug addictions, loss of health, and other devastating losses.
The Spark of Life Grief Retreat is a rejuvenating experience that awakens the hope of Living Forward after loss. Each Spark of Life Retreat, whether in-person or online, is open to anyone 18 years of age and older, with any background and any loss. Every participant is accepted as they are, and where they are on their grief journey. Come alone or with a loved one, and come expecting hope to live forward.

What to Expect

Whether online or in-person, each Spark of Life Grief Retreat is characterized by acceptance of each participant – no matter your loss, background, or any other factor.

The purpose of each retreat: To give hope, that although life can never be the same after loss, life can be rich, fulfilling, and meaningful again.

We CAN Live Forward after horrific loss. We will supply each participant with materials, practical strategies, and group interactions to deal with the hurts and pain of your loss, to help you climb out of that ‘pit of grief.’

Once you register for your particular retreat, you will receive an email with specific details for your retreat.
