Join us we come together in healing and community. Find a connection with other widows while enjoying lunch, guided activities, and healing inspiration. This life changing workshop is facilitated by our founder and credentialed Health Educator and Wellness Coach, Marni Henderson. Space is limited to twelve participants! We will practice all COVID-19 recommendations.
The retreat begins at 11:00 AM to 4:30 PM
* This is a professionally facilitated event in a non-therapeutic setting.
Upon arrival by 11:00 on Saturday morning, you will be greeted by our gracious team of fellow widowed women. Settling into our day together, we introduce ourselves and begin relaxing into a supportive and safe atmosphere.
Lunch will be served with the gentle hum of sharing that feeds your heart with an understanding community. Well nourished and surrounded by a new circle of friends we continue with our day. Led by our professional facilitator, health educator and fellow widow Marni Henderson, we explore our well being and discover new tools for navigating our journey. There is room for laughter, tears, quiet observation, contemplation, and everything in between.
After the short break and a serving of the famous Marg's Chocolate Cake, we continue our guided sessions which lead us to the closing ceremonies-and well, we need to leave something for your imagination! But know that your creative juices will be having fun! As you drive away by 4:30, our hope is that you leave with a deep sense of hope, connection, relief, validation, new tools and renewed energy to continue your journey.
Unlike a support group where sharing of stories is part of the healing process, during this gathering, we will focus on connecting with those who "see" us, discover ways to navigate our daily lives with our wellbeing as a priority, honor our widow wisdom and enjoy some amazing chocolate cake!
Please remember: what is shared at retreat, stays at the retreat! We encourage participants to bring something to drink, weather-appropriate clothing, and willing hearts! Join us in discovering your next stepping stone and springboard of hope!

The widow warriors behind the scenes, making the meals, making phone calls, reaching out to others, growing in grief, laughing around the campfire, quietly offering tender support, and spreading hope. Many of these women were at the first retreat and have continued to sharpen their skills of supporting the healing journey for other widows. Each of them bring a unique style, professional background, experience and personality t our retreats. We like to think this makes for a magical and well rounded team.
We are fiercely committed to offering an experience that enhances the well-being of our widow sisters. There is nothing to fix. This is an opportunity to be seen, validated, supported and celebrated!
