Gone Too Soon Retreat
September 19 - 23, 2022
The pain of loss can feel overwhelming, but there are healthy ways to cope with your grief and
learn to heal. Celebrate Legacy presents the FREE 5-day online event Gone Too Soon Retreat,
September 19 - 23, 2022. Joi Renique is hosting 20+ experts to honor the loved ones you miss and gain
support in ways that help you feel safe and feel seen. Most presentations will last 15-20 minutes and include reminders of key takeaways and how to take action if you are ready. You and many grieving people will have
free access to each video for 24 hours. You'll hear everything from how grief impacts you at different life stages,
the recent diagnosis label of prolonged grief disorder, activities that help you stay connected - sort through and hold on to the special memories, and more. This retreat is focused on the death of a loved one - but not just anyone, your person. This retreat will offer training on resources that are either research-based or innovative to help you
to honor the person you miss and gain support on your journey through grief. Best of all, it's all virtual, so you control your level of involvement and the environment you consume the information. Help and hope can be hard
to come by when you are grieving. Know that you are the expert in your grieving process, even if you don't feel
like you are. The Gone Too Soon Retreat is where you can surround yourself with people who get it with the
support of professionals who can help guide you to this truth. The mission of the Gone Too Soon Retreat is for
you to feel safe and seen as you celebrate the Legacy of your loved one who is gone but not forgotten.

This will be a time to nurture self-compassion, honor our mothers and our lineage, while finding ways to

grief, bring the conversation into the open, provide hope and tools so that everyone who participates
may feel their spirits lifted and the isolation minimized.

great job she's doing as a parent. This retreat is a reminder that you are not alone.
Join this amazing community of women who know what it's like to be a motherless mom.
