Grief is a natural response to the ongoing loss we experience when someone close to us dies. In this retreat, using meditation and reflections, we will explore ways to be with our sorrow and to understand change and impermanence.

The shock of separation and bereavement is often accompanied by feelings of intense sadness, distress or anger. Although we will never forget, we can heal the pain of grief.

This workshop is not recommended for those whose loss is less than three months old or for anyone who might be pregnant.

‘Facing Loss, Healing Grief’ is a regular and well-attended feature of our programme. Places are restricted, so please book early.

You can sit on a chair or on a zafu cushion on the floor, wherever you are comfortable. None of the sessions involve difficult postures or complicated techniques.

Location

The retreat will be held in the Spiritual Care Centre meditation room, a bright ecumenical space with beautiful views.

Catering

Delicious two course vegetarian lunches, with soup and bread in the evenings. Cooked with love at Dzogchen Beara, using homegrown and organic ingredients whenever possible. Tea and coffee.

Accommodation

Rooms are reserved for participants in the Care Centre and our holiday cottages providing a safe and supportive rest place for those attending this workshop. Participants are advised against staying in the hostel for this event. Participants often choose to spend more time in this supportive environment by arriving a few days earlier, or staying a little longer to get the most out of the weekend.

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
