Living with Covid-19 - one year on

Leader: Christine Strohmeier

A safe space to explore what has changed in your life since the first national lockdown in March 2020. Times of crisis are a challenge as change must come, one way or the other, but that is also why they are an opportunity.

Living through Loss

Leader: Mandy Callf

Loss is part of our human experience, all through the different stages of our lives. The covid-19 pandemic in particular has been a time of loss: loss of freedom, loss of `normal`, loss of physical contact, loss of loved ones, especially cruel where there was no opportunity to say `goodbye`. The apartness may also have raised past losses for which we have not grieved. This retreat is a gentle time of being held in a safe place as you explore that loss and find how you can help yourself to cope with and live through loss.

Residential price: £130.00
Non-residential price: £95.00
