How do we heal from loss? We grieve. Our bodies, minds and hearts are created to process loss of all kinds through a sacred journey of grieving. A significant resource on that journey is writing. Putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) opens our heart in new ways and supports our desire to heal. This new overnight retreat will offer a safe space for reflection, writing, sharing and stillness. As you give voice to your loss and allow time for your grief, you take brave steps toward hope and healing. No writing experience is needed.

Lisa A. Irish MA, MEd, BCC, spiritual director and supervisor, carries experience in hospital chaplaincy and retreat leadership to offer compassionate understandings of loss, grief and healing. Of her book, Grieving - the Sacred Art: Hope in the Land of Loss, Fr. Richard Rohr says, “…the roadmap is wise, but sensitive – grounded in hope – and reminds us to rest in God’s healing love.” Lisa’s book is sold in the Mercy by the Sea bookstore. Trusting contemplative practices, she shares regular messages, “Glimmers,” at her website lisairish.com.
