Grief Healing Retreat in Costa Rica

With all of the challenges of the last years, many people have felt isolated in processing through loss. This loss may come from losing a loved one, miscarriage, identity loss, or processing through the shared collective trauma of the events of the last years. This is a brave and loving space to voice your journey in the full spectrum of your emotional experience. This particular program will involve a pre-arrival survey where you will learn more about what you are experiencing so that you can group you with the proper Grief Support Guide and others moving through similar things.

Being witnessed + being held + taking space to process grief

  • Learn about the stages of grief and cultivate compassion for yourself in the process
  • Be held in community with opportunities to be heard + know comfort in hearing the experiences of others
  • Explore daily Sadhanas centered on moving towards healing grief
  • ​Practice emotional release and somatic practices to move stored tension in the emotional system
  • ​Enjoy time with a soulful community passionate about translating their emotional wounds into profound spiritual growth

What will you get from this training?

  • Emotional and physical detoxification through practicing a clean diet, being immersed in nature, and daily practices designed to support the calming of your nervous system
  • Comfort in being present with others moving through grief
  • Individualized 1:1 support and daily check-ins from your Grief Support Guide, small group support, as well as daily experiences with the group as a whole
  • Renewed feelings of connection with yourself and your community

Focus 1: A safe container

  • This is a trauma-informed + sensitive container to come and be gently held in your process
  • An ethnically + professionally diverse staff with varying experiences of grief to support you from a place of depth, integrity, and shared experience

Focus 2: Education on the process of grief

  • Learn the stages of grief and the psychological science of how this moves through the system
  • Explore the Eastern philosophy around loss, how it impacts the energetic system, and yogic practices for supporting this experience

Focus 3: Space

  • There will be daily spaces in the schedule to allow for integration, journaling, and processing
  • ​Fun! All of this can be heavy, and we will also have group experiences and outings to connect, play and tap into joy together

Focus 4: Individualized support

  • This is an ‘All Hands on Deck’ experience for SoulWork™ - meaning - you will have a large team of SoulWork™ Senior teachers present to be available to support you in your process
  • There will be daily check-ins and scheduled 1:1 sessions throughout the week with your Grief Support Guide
  • You will be paired with a group of others in the retreat who are moving through similar things. This will be your smaller ‘family’ of seekers where you will do much of the intimacy building + support. Leave this retreat with lifelong friendships
  • The program will also have a therapist on-site to support you in the event that you need even more personalized + professional support that falls beyond how the program can support you as sisters + yoga teachers
  • You will have daily opportunities (all optional) to sit in intimacy circles, engage in emotional release / processing exercises, be in silence, and be present in nature. Taking time away from your daily life can be an incredible medicine in healing your heart and gaining perspective on the state of your being
