What can you expect during a retreat at Luella's Lodge?

Group discussions: Being with other bereaved parents allows for a special connection and a chance to share our wonderful children. During the retreat, you will have an opportunity to participate in several whole group and small group discussions, meditation and relaxation through Yoga and other methods, memorial projects and exploration of the outdoors. The lodge sits on 10 private acres with a small private lake, and there are kayaks and hiking trails to enjoy nature, allowing for self-reflection and meditation.
