THE STORY:

"Live in the Sunshine of your child's life - Not in the shadow of their death."
All funds raised go directly to offset the financial cost of attending this grief healing retreat for parents who have lost a child. After losing my oldest son in 2010 and being disappointed in the lack of wellness related grief tools I founded 'Crazy Good Grief', a company that provides wellness coaching, online healthy grief programs and retreats for bereaved parents. Without a focus on the value of their own health, parents will go on to suffer secondary losses to health, such as increased risk of hypertension, stroke & heart disease, weight gain, distrupted sleeping/eating habits, depression and overall quality of life, as a result of their child's death.

With a background in exercise physiology, as well as being a certified Wellness Coach and Yoga instructor, I provide health and wellness instruction and yoga designed for grief recovery in these retreats. I integrate lessons in nature and create actions steps they leave with to begin to feel like they move forward in their healing process.

These retreats provide a unique opportunity to spend time with other bereaved parents who understand this type of loss and provide support. The culture of the retreat is very positive, uplifting and focused on gratitude, inspiration and finding joy in the 'new normal' without their child. 

When they leave they realize they will never 'move on', but they can simply move and honor their child's memory in how they care for and love themselves.
