Testimonials

I cannot express how much this weekend has meant to me. My world has changed, my path is brighter.- Meadowlark Retreat Mother

You will be just surrounded by love and by grace and by words of assistance and wisdom by fellow moms and the facilitators. It was really invaluable for me. I felt like I was in a cocoon of warmth and acceptance.- Meadowlark Retreat Mother

I certainly feel that this is a unique opportunity for me, and I feel so grateful to all those responsible for reaching out to care for those of us who are newly bereaved. It is such a desperate time, and this retreat offers the hope of some relief and release of grief. There is so much I want to learn, and I know that those of you who are organizing this retreat have plenty of real life experience to share and offer. I feel a very generous spirit arising from this.- Meadowlark Retreat Mother

Volunteering was a great experience for me, too. The healing process is a very difficult one but helping others is therapeutic. And seeing the tree we planted really moved me. Thank you all! - Meadowlark mom who came back and volunteered

To simply say “Thank You” would never come close to the overwhelming gratitude I have for all of you who have allowed us mothers to gather in a beautiful, safe place to continue our very difficult journey of losing our children.- Meadowlark Retreat mother

Being with other mothers who have experienced the same loss was an incredible experience, I felt heard, understood and taken care of – thank you.- Meadowlark Retreat Mother

There really has been nowhere that offers anything like this—where mothers can come together for an intensely sacred, safe weekend that invites them to go into the place of their grief that rarely is seen by anyone.- Shelly Gillan, Meadowlark Retreat Facilitator and Director of Client Services at Kara
