"Grief is alive, wild, untamed and cannot be domesticated. It resists the demands to remain passive and still. We move in jangled, unsettled, and riotous ways when grief takes hold of us. It is truly an emotion that rises from the soul.” - Francis Weller
Our Rewilding Retreats are a form of soulful restoration with an emphasis on recreating our "natural and uncultivated states" honoring an ancestry, our deeper pasts, community, and the building of continued bonds.
Waves of Grief™ Retreat Costa Rica
Facilitated by TwoCan Retreat & Waves of Grief Collective
For Women to Move through Grief and Loss
Santa Teresa, Costa Rica
July 11-16, 2023
Here is an opportunity to gather in community, to honor, share and witness both personal and collective grief.
Grief must be tended to, given time, space and attention. It can be uncomfortable, raw, messy, and unpredictable, but allowing it to bubble to the surface is a necessary part of the healing process. The result is a natural shift away from anger, sadness and fear toward love, compassion and acceptance — letting go of what no longer serves us, and choosing to engage in a life that supports the new person we are becoming.
Grief isn’t about getting over it or moving on. It’s about moving through it, moving forward, and finding a way to live a life worth living after your heart’s been broken, your world shattered, or you are left feeling hopeless about the future. Grief isn’t linear — it comes and goes, moving in waves as it flows through us — creating opportunities to release held emotions and helping us to find our balance.

Winter Solstice Ocean Healing and Movement Retreat
Facilitated by Kelsey Ellis and J'aime Morrison of Mourning Surf
Join us as we welcome in the winter season, ground into ourselves & explore the ways we can let light in through our bodies in grief.
The winter solstice signals going inward for a time of nourishment and reflection. This has been a significant time of ritual, renewal and a time to cultivate a deeper connection to self.
Inspired by the ancient celtic rituals around the winter solstice we will ride the waves of grief while honoring and celebrating the light within the darkness.
Guided movement meditation and ocean play will move our grief and reset our intentions for the new year.
