Weekend Island Retreat participants-

“This weekend was particularly nurturing.  I enjoyed someone taking over the cooking and really enjoyed the arts and craft project we did.  There was a beautiful blend of down time and structure and Leslee was very flexible with our needs.  I even had time for a bath!! “– Julie B.

“…It was wonderful.  As I walk this journey of child loss, I am learning so much as I go, as all of us are.   I had started to do a little yoga on my own, and found a great studio to help me continue.   The things that I have learned along the way, are that I know I need to take care of myself, and pay attention to what I need, first.   I am finding that if I can’t take care of myself through this process, how am I going to be any help to my loved ones?    This retreat helped me to do just that.   There was a lot of talking and sharing our stories about our loved ones; there were a lot of tears shared; there was solitude as we needed it;  there was camaraderie.   I have found, and continue to find, that those who have walked this walk, and who are just starting out on this walk are the ones that truly know what we are going through.   I had only just started doing a little yoga, but I never worried that I didn’t know enough yoga to keep me from going on this retreat.   It was not so much about yoga, but more about women coming together to share, and support each other through our loss.   It was a wonderful way to pay attention to me, and to feel like we were supporting each other through this journey.   I hope to be able to do this again.   And, I feel that it doesn’t matter whether you are just beginning this journey, or have walked it for many years, we all need this support.   Thank you Leslee…….”     -Sue S.
