Mindfulness Meditation & Grief Retreat: Softening My Heart (2-days)

Grief is like the ocean; it comes in waves, ebbing and flowing.
Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming.
All we can do is learn to swim.
Vicki Harrison


I carry your heart in mine, softly held, fiercely loved, infinitely together. ♡
Melissa Bowers

In her Mindfulness Meditation & Grief Retreat: Softening My Heart, based on her 8-week program, Melissa shares her 3 personal experiences of loss, as she connects the dots to find a lesson, a meaning, and a legacy in each beautiful life.  This retreat will allow space for a sacred circle of sharing, deep inner listening, and healing.  You will be gently guided through the stages of grief – practicing breathwork, gentle movements, and guided meditations.  Melissa will share with you how to connect the dots in your own beautiful life, and how to honour your loved ones.


Included with your enrollment:
•  Program workbook.
•  Inspired digital downloads, including breathwork & meditation practices for easy download to your phone or computer.
•  Continued sharing & support through our private online Mentorship Portal.
