The Sacred Ground of Grief Retreat
Date: Saturday, October 15, 2016
Time: 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Location: NW Longmont, CO
Registration: Email Barbara to register. Open to men and women.
The way to heal our grief is by going through it, and by having others around that can support you in the process. Normal daily life doesn't offer time for this, so we need to take it for ourselves. This day is set aside to explore our losses, and grieve together in a safe and caring environment. We will also discover the gifts we've received and the strengths we've developed through our losses. Through sharing stories, reflection and journaling, and a communal grief ceremony, we will help our hearts heal.

The Labyrinth of Letting Go
Date: Saturday, September 24, 2016
Time: 9:30 am -12:00 pm
Location: NW Longmont
Registration: CLOSED - FULL
Email Barbara to register. Space is limited to 10 participants, so register early.
Description: The Labyrinth of Letting Go Retreat is a time to wholeheartedly let go. Let go of old ideas, attitudes and behaviors that have served their purpose…of relationships that have changed…of old roles and identities that are preventing you from moving forward…of whatever life is asking you to let go of.
Letting go takes courage and requires trust in yourself. In my experience, doing something with the body helps the mind know that change is happening and has happened. Naming and expressing gratitude helps to deepen the process of closure and integration. After letting go, we can be open to new energy and next steps.
We will spend time in reflection and journaling, walking the Native American Labyrinth, and sharing during this time of sacred space.
