Solace in Loss

Solace in Loss

Day Retreat for people bereaved

or affected by a suicide.

Monday 8th July

at the Monastery of Our Lady and St. Bernard, Brownshill,

Stroud, Glos. GL6 8AL

For directions etc, see website; www.bernardine.org/brownshill-directions

 

The day is designed for a small group, in a supportive environment, with guided creative activity. Lunch and refreshments provided.

The main purpose of this retreat;

Bereavement by suicide presents a dilemma for many; on one hand personal tragedy, whereas stigma increases the potential for isolation. The retreat gives you an opportunity to have some time away from your normal life, meeting others who have been bereaved, in a calm surrounding, with supported creative activities.

 

Led by Jola Malin, author of ‘Carry a Whisper’, written on her own experiences of complex grief following her sister’s suicide.

To book a place (£30 for the day) and for more details please contact Jola by email; yolazart@hotmail.co.uk
