Roost Retreats

Upcoming Retreats

At Rett's Roost our tenet is 2 Heal, 2 Endure, 2 Inspire. The 2's for Rett's anniversary (2/22/15) or the day he became free of cancer. While that day was the most heart-breaking event of his parents’ lives, from the experience came a desire to help HEAL others, to teach them how to ENDURE tragedy and trauma, and to INSPIRE them to find joy in their lives again.
