A weekend of care and comfort
A weekend of care and comfort

Why I Do This ....

This retreat is a beginning to take some time for self care.

You will learn about a vareity of ways to nurture your health and your well being.


It is also a time to be with other mothers whose child has died.


I have set the intention for the weekend as a time for not only being nurtured, but also appreciating the value of self care. Family and friends do their best to be helpful and supportive, but there is something to be said about being with other mothers who are living this experience and are doing their best to survive and find meaning and hope for the future.


It is my intent that the time spent together will not only be a “respite” to nurture our spirits but also a beginning step to taking care of ourselves each and every day after the reatreat, and especially for those difficult days such as anniversaries, birthdays and special occassions.


For me, I have found comfort in creating and facilitating these retreats and through meeting with other mothers who are bereaved.


Matthew loved helping others. The retreat is my way of giving back and also honouring Matthew's life.I feel his smile and his spirit at each retreat weekend.
