About the Event

Our Hope Retreat engages bereaved families in a variety of experiential holistic therapeutic activities and offers an opportunity to learn more about ways we can help empower ourselves navigate the grief journey. Grief affects every part of us: body, mind, & spirit.  Let Grace In believes in the power of community and creating safe spaces rooted in culture, research and experience. With your permission, our compassionate, professionals will come alongside you and offer an opportunity to revive health in the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual self while developing meaningful relationships with families who have suffered a similar loss.

The retreat is offered to the whole family and will have programing for both parents and children.  Depending on the ages of the children, seperate groups & activities will be created by our keiki grief facilitaors to offer an environment most appropriate for each child. We are happy to talk with you prior to retreat.
