The Sunrise Grief Retreat Society (not for profit) offers retreats for persons who are grieving.



Mission Statement
To heal, renew and educate the bereaved.

Purpose:
To provide a safe and compassionate environment to explore the journey of grief

To uncover the mystery of grief and understand the many emotions of loss

To provide tools for healing and growth


COVID-19:
Due to BC Disease Control recommendations, regrettably, we are unable to offer our retreats in 2020. We provide a comforting and nurturing experience in our retreats that is not conducive to social distancing or personal protective equipment requirements. We will provide more information and updates in early spring 2021.

We encourage you to seek and/or continue with local support in your grief journey. 
In addition, we would like to offer you some links to some resources that we hope you will find helpful. 



The following list directs you to websites offering assistance and information on a variety of topics related to grief.


I need not instinctively know what to do or how to be with my grief.

I can reach out to others who have walked this path before.

I learn that to ultimately heal, I must touch and be touched by the experiences of those who have gone before me. 

These people can offer me hope, inner strength and the gift of Love.  unknown
