Grief and loss

– find peace and refuge with meditation 

2-day non-residential Retreat

9.15 am–4 pm Saturday 29 October-Sunday 30 October

Lifeflow Studio


Grief and feelings of loss are deeply personal and occur differently for everyone.  

They bring with them emotions that are strong and overwhelming at times, and which are not always understood by others. 

These feelings can present themselves in many situations…. 

Someone close to you may have passed away recently, or a while ago. Or, you may have lost a close personal relationship or a valued friendship. They also arise when someone suffers a job loss, retires, or receives a frightening health diagnosis or even during a big life change. 

Whatever the circumstances, meditation can provide a way to accept and experience your emotions and give tools to navigate through these difficult times. 

On this retreat Lifelow teachers Ingrid Lienert and Gretta Koch will share with you how to manage your grief and loss through the practice of meditation.  

They will bring all their meditation experience as teachers, along with inspiration from their own personal journeys of pain, grief, and loss through to love, understanding, transformation and healing. 

You will: 

~ Find comfort in knowing you are not alone in this experience. 

~ Know that it is possible to rest in and accept your grief and loss. 

~ Discover tools and strategies you can use to help you find the peace and sanctuary that you need to hold and heal strong emotional pain. 

~ Learn to create a safe environment in which you can accept your emotions and discover healthy ways to process and work with them. 

~ Develop resilience 

You’ll also be taken care of in the beautiful Lifeflow studio including: delicious food, restorative yoga, deep relaxation and time and space to rest and restore.
