River Winds Estate – Saco, ME
Connect with a community of bereaved parents. Share your child’s story and learn healthy ways to grieve.
Our vision at Rett’s Roost is to cultivate a community of families pursuing a path of healing through shared experiences of connection, joy, and reflection. This retreat will offer both reflective release and hopeful perspective to parents that have lost a child to chronic illness. The goal is to bring together a group of empathetic friends that understand the plight of being a parent that has lost a young child.
This retreat runs from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon at a beautiful farmstead in Saco, ME. We will offer supportive, therapeutic activities to connect with others and to heal within. Our hope is that you leave feeling like you took some time to honor your child, while at the same time taking care of your broken heart.
Each couple will have their own bedroom (some single moms may have to share a large room). There is a small indoor lap pool and exercise room available and we will have the opportunity to connect with horses on the property. Rett’s Roost staff and volunteers will be providing delicious, healthy meals and snacks. We’ll be offering grief support, yoga, art, reiki, and sound therapy for both parents and children. Most importantly, we’ll have time to connect over our loss.
