"Love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation."
Kahlil Gibran

Description

Grief is a personal journey, never the same for any two people and as unique as your life and your relationships. Although loss is an inevitable part of life, how you approach this fact can make the difference between meaningless pain and the manifestation of understanding and wisdom. The Yoga of Grief Retreat Weekend supports reflection and healing with the help of tools from the ancient Yoga system of the Vedas; the system helps us to understand the continuity of life and to touch the immortal in all. This weekend you will be supported with Meditation, Yoga Asanas, excerpts from the Bhagavad Gita, Ayurvedic self care, walks in nature, as well as time to reflect and digest your experience of loss.
