From Grief to Grace Retreat

Dealing with the pain of loss and grief is hard, to say the least. Join me for an intimate, one-of-a kind re-treat where you can get away from all the bullshit life throws your way and have some much needed time to help heal your heart. Below is a description of the last From Grief to Grace Retreat, read below for more info and sign-up to stay in the loop for the next one!

Join me for a 3 day/2 night island retreat just outside of Vancouver, B.C. As a self-proclaimed loss sur-thriver, I know first-hand how challenging loss and hardship can be. I’ve been where you are but through self-love, divine guidance and doing the work , I came out punching with more clarity and purpose than ever. I now help people transform their grief to personal growth and help us change our relationship with death, loss and ultimately...ourselves. Learn more about me...

I created a special retreat on moving beyond loss to find the gifts that are often deeply imbedded underneath the pain.  

Praise about From Grief to Grace..

"I cannot say enough good things about the retreat and how Rachel approached the weekend. There was a ton of variety in the written and physical activities (outdoor education excursion, speaking to a spiritual medium, breathing exercises) and discussions (where to find moments of honour and joy).  After the retreat, I felt like I had taken a step forward which seemed impossible previously. Rachel gave us real tools and exercises to use whenever we are in that overwhelming moment of 'stuckness'. I would strongly encourage anyone who is feeling stuck, confused, or aimless after a loved one’s death to work with her."
