A Note from Kath to Early Group (Retreaters)

Posted on: Monday, March 19, 2012

Dear Early Group Members,

First, I want to thank you for being a part of The Healing Center.  I continue to be grateful for each of you who come to us with your grief.  I look forward to meeting those of you I have not yet met and I look forward to getting to know others better.

I wanted to take a minute to encourage you to attend the Early Group Retreat that is coming up in April.  I believe that the time you will spend there is invaluable. I consider the retreats one of the best things we offer at The Healing Center.  It is incredible what can happen in one weekend with others who understand. Here are a few comments from participants at past retreats:

“What a wonderful atmosphere of sharing, inclusiveness and caring. I feel lucky also to have met other retreaters so generous with resources, time and empathy. I definitely came away feeling more positive and richer for the experience.”

“What a high I am on right now, since the retreat… I feel so strongly that with my support group, along with my own resources, I WILL SURVIVE. And not only survive but live to enjoy life again someday. Before the retreat, I truly did not know if I could or would; I didn’t really care. Now I do, and this is huge for me.”

“The retreat was a wonderful experience. It was a time all the many distractions in life stood still and I was able to listen to my own thoughts.”

“I liked the fact that the retreat was lightly structured, but participants were strongly supported. We were fed, touched, guided and comforted while being allowed to discover new ways of learning, communicating and surviving in the outside world. Visualization activities were very helpful. I definitely came away feeling more positive and richer for the experience. Thank you for this gift of time together.”

I will hope to see many of you on Whidbey Island and perhaps others at our May Day Walk on May 6th. Please continue to take care of yourselves and trust in your process. If you have particular questions about the retreat, please feel free to contact me at:

Take care!
