About the Event

Fearless Grieving Retreat 2023 - A Full Day of Holistic Recovery

Be Heard ~ Be Validated ~ Be Healed

We are so pleased to announce our Annual Grief Retreat at Orchard View Lavender Farm.  For anyone who has experienced a loss of any kind, or even who is crushed under the weight of The Times in which we are living, this event is for you.

Created and guided by renowned Grief Coach & Counselor Claire M. Schwartz, Founder of Miriam's Well Healing LLC and, this will be a day of solace and support, outdoors on our lovely grounds and under our beautiful pavilion. Claire has been walking her path of survival and healing for 35+ years. She comes from a place she calls The Dark Ugly™ and diligently works to DeMystify and DeStigmatize Grief & Trauma Healing for her clients. She uses her authenticity and integrity, wit, and warmth to bring ease and comfort to the toughest of losses. Claire holds a BA in psychology and is a Certified Professional Coach, Reiki Master Teacher, Spiritual Counselor, Interfaith Minister, and Grief & Trauma Healing Expert.  She is also a member of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress.

Our day will include:

  • Group Guided Meditation & Grounding
  • Breathwork
  • A Healing Circle
  • Memorial Altar, which we will build
  • Personalized Healing Guidance
  • Five Sense Engagement
  • Journaling on the grounds
  • Exclusive shopping time in The Lavender Farm Stand

Specific Healing Tools and Extras will be added, based on who joins us and what you need. We may explore the essential elements of Self-Care, how to deal with judgment and hurtful behavior of others, and moving beyond Crisis Mode.

Claire will also be teaching us how to find quality support after the Retreat – what to look for within ourselves and in our Healing Team.

A delicious gourmet Box Lunch, prepared by Chef Ed Oliveira, will be provided. You will have the option of selecting either a protein and grain bowl or a sandwich and salad combo. Vegetarian and Gluten Free options are available. Please send your lunch selection to no later than July 7. 

Each Attendee will receive a Signed Copy of Claire's Book, Putting Out The Fire, and some lovely takeaway gifts, as well.

Closer to the event, you will receive an email from Claire, who is leading the Retreat, to get a few details about your personal story so we can plan for your needs, as well as what you need to bring to the event.
