Can you see yourself in the darkness of the pain, loss, death, and grief that has the potential to drown you in its wake?
This retreat will offer a realness and intimacy that no online program can create. If you are being called to join a like-minded group of women who are navigating loss and are wanting a different and more rewarding way in which to move forward and not only survive this loss, but to thrive - this retreat might be for you.
We will start each day with morning meditation, walk, and reflection. We will learn to use our breath to quiet our minds surrounded in nature.
When you lose a loved one to death, it is so easy and understandable to find yourself lost as well. You may even be asking yourself, “what’s next?” Or, “now what?” Your life with your loved one may have been your identity for so long. Your whole life may have revolved around them and taking care of your loved one. They were very much a part of your life and daily routine. When a loved one leaves this earth, it can leave you ripped wide open. What do you do now that they are no longer physically present? If your identity was based around keeping your loved one safe and sound, how do you begin to repair yourself and rebuild an identity without them? How do you answer, or stop asking yourself, the toughest questions - What happened? What could I have done differently? And the, “if only’s?”
On this 3-night, 4 day, all-inclusive retreat, you will find yourself in a beautiful setting, situated on 43 acres in Northern NM to roam, to reflect, to contemplate… to sit still. You will learn the techniques that have worked for Angie, offering assurance that your loved one is still right here. When you find your loved one you will find something even greater…Yourself.
If you find yourself believing that there might be something more. If you have a burning desire to seek and find your loved one. If you want to learn how to reconnect with who you are, and feel the value that you and your life have on this planet right now - this retreat, in the heart of the painted desert, might be for you.
Angie has carefully crafted this retreat with you in mind. She provides personal instruction and offers experiential practice in a workshop setting allowing you to fine tune your newly acquired skill. Some of the methods you might find will fit nicely into your toolkit and others might just be nice to know. Each of us are individuals with different needs and desires. The goal of her retreat is providing as many resources that have worked for her including favorite books, meditation, understanding energy, and most importantly a mindful awareness as you continue on your life’s journey.
The purpose of this retreat is to create an intimate gathering of other women who have lost a loved one to death and who are choosing to learn a new language to best communicate with our loved ones whenever we desire.
Home Cooked Meals
Our personal chef will cook delicious farm-table meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We will eat meals together, rotating around to each of the large family tables across Moonglades for fresh, home-cooked food, conversation, and company.
I know when I was a bit concerned about my younger son one evening - and as a mother most can probably relate to these feelings several times during their children’s life - instead of panicking, worrying, and getting my mind all wrapped up in the worst case scenarios, I remembered to just stop and breathe, and a voice from deep inside of my soul whispered, ‘Don’t worry Mom. I got this.’ And sure enough, I knew that voice. I knew that voice! No words were necessary, it was from one soul to another. When I did not allow my mind to take over like it has been programmed to do, it was important for me to trust and believe that little voice deep inside. When I did, I allowed the process of life instead of forcing it my way.
Since the day we are born we are programmed in to a set of beliefs and programs. These programs have come from parents, teachers, religion, and other social institutions. Everything, up until now, in life and death has been a set of rules, regulations, attitudes and beliefs. Not only in life, but how we view and ultimately navigate death, loss, grief, and suffering as well.
If you are ready to change your thoughts, attitudes, beliefs, and progams that you have been taught and continue to live as you navigate through loss, this retreat might be for you.
This retreat promises to challenge you and your current set of beliefs. After the suicide deaths of my son and second husband, I realized that I did not have the right tools to navigate this journey. My tool box was missing tools and I had to search outside of my own set of self-limiting beliefs and ideals that were programmed deep in my head. I learned to trust myself and those that I attracted into my life. I found healers that were loving and kind who offered their geniuses to me whom I will be forever grateful. I look forward to sharing every tool, every resource, every book, every sound that I have learned which has provided me the greatest healing of all.
We will journal, create, and meditate through silence, music, and movement. We will engage in a variety of lectures and workshops to begin the process of connecting with our loved ones while reconnecting with ourselves. You will learn to let go of negative beliefs as they pertain to death which no longer serve your highest and best interests. We begin to reframe the way we have been taught about death and loss by dispelling antiquated beliefs.
This is offering just a little taste of what you will experience if you choose to join me on this journey. A more comprehensive schedule will be provided to you approximately four weeks prior to the start of the retreat.
Please visit this site often as I will be updating and creating the most rewarding and meaningful retreat possible. When you leave Moonglades, it is my desire that you have several new tools and resources to assist as you navigate this journey through death and loss long after the retreat concludes.
