...developing physical, emotional and spiritual well-being and happiness

Event Type: Course/Weekend

Attaining emotional wellness involves becoming aware of what is going on inside us in relation to our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being/happiness. Once we understand the value of our emotions and stop ‘short-circuiting’ or ‘pushing them down’ through unhealthy coping strategies, we can utilise them to help us move forward, make wise choices and build healthier relationships.

'Living with Loss’ Retreat

2 - 4 November 2018

Event Type: Retreat/Weekend

Theme/Focus: Supportive Weekend

Grief following bereavement can feel overwhelming, particularly if we have lost a partner or child, or if our loved one’s passing was sudden or traumatic, or if we have suffered multiple losses. The aim of this supported retreat is to better equip us to deal with our life-changing loss. We will look at some of the spiritual, emotional and practical challenges of our grief, and then explore practical and creative ways of coping with our daily living as it is now, as well as the hope that our faith offers as we continue our journey through life. 

Retreat Leader:

Abi May is an experienced Christian author, educator and retreat leader, as well as being a bereaved mother. Her husband John has been active in Christian service for four decades. 

“Living with Loss” retreats have been held at locations around the UK. Abi also runs short “Grief Companion” training courses as well as a blog/website: www.avalleyjournal.co.uk 

Living with loss following bereavement: 

The focus of our retreat is on making the best of our life in the present. We have several led sessions every day. These include explanations, reflection prompts, creative activities, discussions, times of reflection and prayer, and listening to music or inspirational readings. 

Besides the led sessions, there is time for personal reflection, handouts to work on individually, as well as the opportunity for participants to have individual prayer with retreat leaders if you wish. A selection of relevant books are made available to read during the retreat. 

The retreat is a strengthening experience, not only because of our personal reflections, but we may also discover from being alongside others who are grieving that we are not alone as we might have felt.

Led by: Abi May is leading the retreat, and her husband John will be available for individual prayer as a grief companion.
