Motherless Moms Thriving Virtual Retreat
The FREE Motherless Moms Thriving 3-Day Virtual Retreat runs November 10-12, 2020.
This will be a time to nurture self-compassion, honor our mothers and our lineage, while finding ways to
grow and learn so we can thrive in life! The intention of this retreat is to help (re)define grief, normalize
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.
Mothering motherless is not something we have to do alone. This event is for mothers who feel alone
and/or who no longer have that woman in her life providing words of encouragement and validating the
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.

Sunrise Retreats has had to postponed their 2020 widows retreats due to safety reasons,
but know that it these intimate weekends are a source of hope and nourishment for so many.

support each other while participating in some type of outdoor activity.
