MIDWESTERN AUTUMN WEEKEND
"your time to heal"

CORONAVIRUS RULES FOLLOWED

October 15-18, 2020

This Healing Weekend Retreat is for you if:

YOU AND I KNOW EACH OTHER.
BY "KNOW EACH OTHER" I MEAN ... I HAVE WORKED WITH YOU BEFORE IN SOME CAPACITY ... OR YOU HAVE BEEN VERY PRESENT SINCE MY FB LIVES BEGAIN ON MARCH 31ST.

* someone you love dearly has died.

* you believe that 
healing your broken heart is possible.
Not as a destination.
But as a way of being in the world.

* you are willing/READY/able to join a circle of kindred spirits
~ other people learning to live
with the death of someone they love dearly ~
and consciously create
a safe, sacred space
with the intention of healing.

* you are ready to look at
YOU
YOU
YOU
and ask yourself
"What steps can I take
to facilitate my own healing?"

I AM HEALING
I AM HEALING
I AM HEALING

This Healing Weekend Retreat is for you if:

* you are ready
yearning actually
to go deeper
to find your truth
and take the next step on your healing journey
supported by a small group
of like-minded people
kindred souls
members of your tribe.

* you want to practice 
EXTREME SELF-CARE
and see value in
gifting yourself
with
an old-fashioned
Midwestern Autumn Weekend
that includes:

wading in the water
collecting and painting rocks
staring at the stars
make-your-own ice cream sundaes
playing with sparklers
staring up at the trees
and daydreaming.
There will be lots of daydreaming.

We'll also mix in
structured
and unstructured
powerful
healing
transformational work.

THE INTENTIONS
The Intentions I've set for our time together are:


1.  To give you tools you can use
to help you
take a step closer to
tasting
feeling
touching
smelling
and even hearing
what HEALING means for you.

2.  To remind you
again
or for the first time
what it feels like
to take
EXTREME CARE
of you.

3.  To define and help you create
a safe, sacred space
with the intention of healing.

4.  To learn the difference between
grief and mourning.
To identify concrete ways
you can mourn.

5.  To ask and begin to answer
some of life's fundamental questions.

6.  To explore the possibility that
THE RELATIONSHIP CONTINUES.

7.  To experience the importance 
and the power
of story telling.

8.  To identify
NEXT STEPS
as you begin to create
the rest of your life here on Planet Earth.

9.  To laugh
to love
to create a life-changing
transformative
healing
unforgettable weekend
TOGETHER
with people who "get you."

10.  To put the teachings presented in
Tom Zuba's first book
Permission to Mourn:
A New Way to Do Grief

into practice.
