Redeemed was created for mothers who have experienced the death of a child from any type of loss. This retreat focuses specifically on loss and healing through the redeeming power of Christ.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Whole group and small group discussions: Being with other bereaved mamas is something most of us find so rare, yet incredibly comforting and powerful. During the retreat, you will have an opportunity to participate in several whole group and small group discussions. Topics will be determined based on the needs of the mothers in attendance.
Meditation and Relaxation through Yoga and other methods: Yoga is defined as a spiritual discipline, a part of which, including breath control, simple mediation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures, is widely practiced for health and relaxation. Yoga and light stretching activities will be available in the morning, serving as a relaxing and peaceful way to start each day.
Memorial Projects: There will be several memorial projects offered throughout our time together. It is a time to reflect on and remember our angels through a tangible process, either independently or as a group.
Exploration of the Outdoors: Our home sits on beautiful lake and spectacular open space - allowing the perfect opportunity for individual or shared exploration. This will lend itself for time to appreciate the beauty of your surroundings all while bonding with other mothers, or using the time for self-meditation.
Personal Reflection: As adults, mothers, career women, spouses, daughters, friends...the list of roles we take on daily is endless. Take in some moments during the retreat for personal reflection and remembrance of your child and your journey, as we believe this independent time is an essential part of the healing process.
Sharing Our Angels: As grieving mothers we can often feel alienated from the rest of the world. For most of us, we rarely get the chance to talk about our children with the outside world. Use this weekend as a platform to talk to and about them- sharing as much or as little of your journey as you feel comfortable. We will say their names, and we will honor and remember them- all while taking much needed time for yourself and your personal healing.
REDEEMED has a limited space for 12 bereaved moms.
Cost for the retreat is $350. We do have partial, half and full scholarships that will be offered. If you are interested in a partial scholarship, please complete the registration form above.
