)-- Life after Loss: An Expressive Arts Retreat at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont will bring people together who have experienced significant loss in their lives, offering creative experiences to explore grief and to break open opportunities for healing. The event will be held Friday through Sunday, April 22-24.
The program offerings will include Sacred Source Painting, candle and book making, Writing to Heal the Heart, round table discussions, a memorial celebration, hiking, S’mores around a campfire as well as use of full facilities such as pool, hot tub and sauna. Child care, with guided therapeutic activities, will be available.
This will be a relaxing opportunity to really unwind, and connect with like-minded souls in a safe, non-judgemental environment,” said Chaffee. “Folks can choose to participate in program offerings as much or as little as they choose, creating a good balance of time alone and time together. It will be a weekend of creative self-expression, conversation, reflection, and just being.”
Presented by Act II Publications of East Lyme, Connecticut, the event is being facilitated by Patricia Ann Chaffee, Community Minister at Niantic Community Church; Marlissa Mills, Coordinator of Bereavement and Family Support Services, Connecticut Hospice; Dr. Joanne Moore, author of After the Loss of a Spouse: What's Next?, a speaker on end of life issues, and publisher of Pathfinder: A Companion Guide for the Widow/er’s Journey, an online resource for those who are rebuilding their lives after loss; and Prin Van Gulden, a Vermont based farmer and fiber artist with a passion for traditional and land based crafts.
“The Trapp Family Lodge provides a luxurious environment for reflection and rejuvenation for people who are grieving, while compassion and comfort are offered with each new friendship,” said Moore. “Expressive arts honors the memory of our loved one, and helps us see a way to a new life path.”
