Grief Retreats

Experience Hope after Loss

Since 2009…

Thousands of grievers have experienced hope after loss. They have taught us that there IS hope after all kinds of losses, such as… loss of children, grandchildren, parents, siblings, and friends, suicide loss, and non-death losses such as divorce, children with addictions, loss of health, loss of relationships with children, childhood sexual abuse, and other devastating losses.

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 is 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 a 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 retreat, you will receive an email with further details.
