Weekend Grief Retreat to Be Held at Inn

>> Tuesday, February 22, 2011

When people experience a significant loss, whether it is the loss of job, the loss that comes with a move, or the ultimate loss through death, every part of their being needs to heal.  Arts & Nature - Healing after Loss provides concrete ways for hurting hearts to begin the healing process. This seminar will focus on healing the whole person - mind, body & spirit, through time spent in God's beautiful nature and an emphasis on dealing with grief through expressions in art.

This annual event will be held at the Mountain Rose Inn on April 15-17, 2011. The Inn, a Blue Ridge Mountains B&B, secluded on 100 acres along the Rock Castle Creek provides a peaceful setting for souls in need of a quiet, reflective space.
