Program Description

Join us as Claudia Love guides our community into writing to process grief.

Your brothers and sisters in grief will support you as you write, as Claudia Love guides you into brave expressions of the various emotions you experience on this journey. Whether you are mourning the death of a loved one, the end of a marriage, or the aftermath of a natural disaster–whatever losses you carry–this mini-retreat will offer you the tools to help you find your authentic voice and get your words on the page.
