Grief and Growing™: A Healing Weekend for Bereaved Individuals and Families
August 23-25, 2019
“It is incredible to have that time and space to be where we are at, knowing our kids are in loving hands and that there are people who care. It’s hard not to have this more often in my grief, but it helps knowing the space is there.” —Grief and Growing™ Participant
Are you grieving someone significant to you who has died? Would you find comfort…
- among other bereaved individuals and families
- in a beautiful Bay Area setting
- supported by a holistic professional staff of griefcare and camp specialists
- in a weekend dedicated to grief and healing?
This unique weekend is designed to help individuals and families attend to their losses and identify tools to help them in their mourning. Being away from home in the natural beauty of a rustic retreat center offers a path through grief in a comforting setting. Many participants appreciate the support of bodywork, music, spiritual guidance and clinical expertise, and they find that taking the dedicated time to focus on their grief buoys them as they return to their daily schedule. This weekend is the only one of its kind in the Jewish community for individuals and families.
We welcome the diversity of the community including families of all kinds, all gender identities and sexual orientations, ages, class, race and cultural affinities.
Financial aid is available by calling the Bay Area Jewish Healing Center at: (415) 750.3436. No one is turned away for lack of funds.
“I found the weekend very meaningful and am making use of things that I learned. I loved the music and have enjoyed the songbook. The material in the packet has been helpful. The healing service was very powerful as was making the prayer shawl. And all of the sharing was extremely useful.”—Grief and Growing™ camper
