Everyone experiences unwelcome major life-changing events at some point. Someimes we need help navigating the grief and loss journey. How do we move through our trajectories, carrying and processing what arises without feeling stuck? How do we begin to come to terms and embrace the teaching and transformation that these deep, and often shocking, encounters may bring us?
In this one-day experiential retreat we meet in the most incredible location in Chatsworth to pause, reflect and gather in community to witness and find safe and effective ways to support our processes with grief and loss. Through the tools of art, movement, non-judgment and supportive witnessing we will explore and express the feelings, ideas, concerns and questions, inviting creativity, openness, trust and expansion.
- Release and share in a supportive community
- Investigate what the mind-body holds and express it freely
- Rediscover your laughter and joy
- Banish the nagging feeling of guilt - be happy to be alive
- Unlock the possibility of living life to its fullest potential
Using the 5Rhythms© movement practice, we will investigate movement with what is present for us in the moment. We will then articulate that through artistic expression – visualization, expressive drawing and/or writing. Finally we will gather in circle to share a facilitated conversation, which will give us the possibility to speak to what’s alive for us and what may have moved into the alchemical realms of creative potential. All the more opening ourselves to the possibility of living life to its fullest, moment to moment, with the gifts and tribulations that are making our path unique.

Maryann Udel, Founder of Sheltering tree
I was 24 when my husband was killed in an automobile accident. Overnight, I went from being a young wife to a young widow. From deeply in love to lost in grief. Family and friends were all extremely supportive, but ultimately, I had to figure out how to move myself forward and reclaim my life.
Through years of discovery and exploration, I found it is possible to live, love, laugh and find joy again after loss. And I've made it my mission to help others who are experiencing massive transition know that they're not alone, and to help them reconnect with their life.
