You may never get over the death of a loved one but together we can change our relationship with grief and learn to grow with it. Come be a part of a space where your grief is validated, acknowledged and supported.

A women’s retreat to share, feel and support your grief after loss. 

June 20-23 2019 at Nectar Yoga B&B, Bowen Island, BC

Surrounded by nature, join Richelle Muscroft for a weekend to nourish your mind, body and soul in a compassionate and welcoming space with the collective support of women who have also experienced loss.

Weekend Includes:

  • 3 nights stay at the new Nectar Yoga B&B (private + shared accommodation)

  • All nourishing meals, snacks and smoothies from Wildhearts Living

  • Daily guided yoga, meditation and breathwork

  • Facilitated conversation, share circles and guided journaling

  • Quiet time for reflection, walks in nature and rest

  • Kitchen Sadhana- Self-Care Workshop

  • Take home resources, self-care practices and more

  • Space limited to 10 people

It was very helpful to be among women who were going through, and therefore understood, the grief I am going through. Richelle’s warmth and kindness, as well as her generous spirit, made it a safe place to feel and share the immense pain we are all experiencing.

This retreat helped me in so many ways, it gave me an opportunity to spend time with those that have had a loss just as devastating as it is to me. It made me look at things differently and listen to those stories that we shared amongst us. Moving forward I have build connections to some very strong women and I know I can find my way.
