Journey to the center of your heart

Updated: Apr 11, 2023

Imagine taking a few days away to disconnect from everyday stressors and immerse yourself in the beauty of the natural world. Consider how it might feel to meander slowly on a wooded path, remembering what it’s like to breathe again, all the while connecting to your heart, your lost son or daughter, and your God - in uniquely personal and profound ways.


Enter the world of a weekend retreat, where your “yes” becomes a conduit for the mystery of God’s presence and paves the way for your grief to encounter grace.

I am not painting an unrealistic picture. Big things happen on little retreats. Things that simply can’t happen in everyday life. I know this to be true. And for those of you who have attended a weekend retreat at some point in your life, you know this too. You know that sweet surprises, little “God-incidences,” seem to appear around every corner. Things you could never have imagined. The rhythm of time changes and slows to a gentle pace. From the moment your feet touch the retreat grounds, you know you’re “supposed to be here.”


Whether you have or you haven’t (yet) attended a weekend retreat, I cordially invite you to come away for a while and experience real rest. Experience Soul Rest.

A Mother’s Love & Loss - finding peace after the death of a son or daughter is a 4-day, 3-night retreat developed by Sacred Sorrows - where grieving mothers will find nurturing, comfort, and peace. A place where grace will infuse softness into rough edges, calm into weariness, and fullness of life into sorrow. The rooms are private, the views are lovely, the food is delicious, and, there's even some time allotted for napping.


Think of it as a pilgrimage home - to your heart.

To the very heart of the matter.


Please join us.


Our next retreat is May 18-21, 2023 in Tucson Arizona.
