Honoring Grief and Celebrating Life Online Retreat

Oct 4, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm CDT


We have lost so much in this past year from the ravages of Covid-19, the lockdown, social isolation, and the wildfires, floods and severe weather. We haven’t been able to gather together to grieve and remember. Our heroic healthcare workers, in particular, have had to put emotions aside just to get through the days of caring for the sick and dying. Our unexpressed grief has taken an emotional and spiritual toll on us all. While it still isn’t safe to gather in person, it is time to come together in virtual space to grieve those we have lost—our human loved ones, treasured trees, creature-kin, lost life moments—and to celebrate the gift of their lives.

Join facilitator Kathleen Rude and Prairiewoods via Zoom for this one-day retreat. We will spend the day in ritual, reflection and sharing, honoring our grief in the morning and celebrating life in the afternoon. We will have ample breaks throughout and 90 minutes for lunch and relaxation. Kathleen is gifted in creating beautiful and transformative rituals online and will guide us with compassion and loving care.


The cost is $75.  Online registration here.

This is sponsored by Prairiewoods Franciscan Spirituality Center

This is not a full Work That Reconnects workshop, but it is based in the wisdom of the Spiral.
