Something special happens when you gather a group of open-minded seekers who give themselves to a weekend of self-exploration and growth — not in spite of grief, but because of it.
During this retreat, we build a sacred circle, an intimate and safe container for grief to be felt, expressed, shared and moved. Throughout the weekend, the group creates an environment of unconditional love and acceptance, in which all experiences and feelings are acknowledged and validated. Within this field, we learn to be a witness for ourselves and each other, cultivating compassion, self-awareness and connection. A heightened trust invites greater vulnerability and authentic sharing to take place.
We know that grief ‘lives’ in the body. Through yoga, meditation, expressive movement, dance, writing, ritual, art and somatic exploration and sharing, we can observe where we are holding grief in our bodies, without judgment, in order to move through it.
This is our time to be present and deeply rooted in our bodies – being awake to memories, emotions, traumas, wounds, and stories – whatever our bodies need to “speak”. This a powerful way of birthing ourselves, a process that teaches us to access the wisdom that can only come from within.
This weekend is an opportunity to gather with others who are grieving in a supportive, restorative and transformative way, through an embodied approach to working with grief. Regardless of what kind of loss you are grieving or where you are at along your healing journey, we invite you to join our circle. All are welcome.
Located near Garden of the Gods and downtown Manitou Springs, SunMountain is a beautiful retreat center that lets you feel peace as you explore the tranquility of nature – a wonderful opportunity to rest, replenish, and renew yourself spiritually. Included in the weekend is the use of SunWater, a spa featuring natural mineral-water cedar pool soaking, yoga, massage, cultural events, and more.
