Rett’s Roost Heart-quarters – Ogunquit, ME
In the fall, we will be hosting a retreat for parents whose only child was taken by cancer. This is a weekend for sharing memories and finding peace.
This retreat is specific to parents that lost their only child and may or may not be able to have another. While we cannot hope to relieve your grief in one weekend, our goal is to change your course towards healing even if you cannot see how that might be possible. We hope you leave feeling less alone in this lonely world of childloss, with tools in your back pocket and friends to call on for when you enter those dark spaces of suffering.
The retreat runs from Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon so it provides two full days of therapeutic support and connecting with others. Staying overnight Sunday is also an option. Besides allowing plenty of time to relax, we offer supportive, optional activities to connect with others and to heal within.
Each couple will have their own bedroom, singles may be asked to share. There is a hot tub available on-site. Rett’s Roost staff will be providing delicious, healthy meals. We’ll be offering grief support, yoga, art, and music/sound therapy. Also, get a massage, energy treatment and professional portraits taken.
