FROM GRIEF TO GRATITUDE...

FROM GRIEF TO GRATITUDE...

In a nutshell...

Grief is a natural part of being human. Unresolved grief can lead to painful emotions like anger, blaming yourself or others, guilt, shame, hopelessness, depression, and more.

It may feel overwhelming and never-ending, the emptiness being ever-present and deeply painful. It might seem impossible that life will ever be joyful again. We may do anything to avoid feeling the pain – through distractions, addictions, medication,…

Energy Psychology techniques calm the stress centre in your brain allowing it to process high levels of emotion and trauma to completion. This 6 day retreat will open a door to move towards a natural sense of closure and re-engage with the world in a more joyful way.

You will be taken on grounding walks, lovely breakfast and picnics in the wilderness, contemplative game drives, while experiencing the present moment and being supported by Bennie & Jeanne on your grieving journey. You’ll appreciate precious moments of silence and plenitude among the animals, and may allow contentment and gratitude to come into your life again….
