Grief and the Wisdom of Forgiveness

Presented by Elizabeth Lewis

October 13 @ 6:00 pm October 14 @ 4:00 pm

Grief is a natural process, a healthy response to the pain and stress of loss. Forgiveness is a process that requires intention and effort – a purposeful letting go of demands and expectations one makes on God, life, self or others as a condition for expressing love and other positive attitudes. Often when grief is present, unforgiveness is also present compounding our pain and inhibiting our inner peace.

In this workshop we will explore through discussion, guided meditations and other exercises: the connection between grief and forgiveness; why we resist forgiveness and how that resistance can compound grief; and the benefits of and reasons for forgiving. This workshop experience will also highlight two forgiveness models: The Four Fold Path and The Eight Steps to Freedom.

 Elizabeth Lewis is a motivational speaker, personal development coach, grief support specialist and spiritual counselor whose areas of expertise include resilience building, forgiveness facilitation, healing art and writing, and trauma healing. Recognizing that there is no “one-size-fits-all” path to wellness and a sense of wholeness, Elizabeth has pursued extensive training and certification in diverse approaches to resilience, healing and growth. Elizabeth also draws on her personal resilience and experience in overcoming trauma to help her clients find their own best path to wellness. For more information on Elizabeth and her work, visit

Registration begins at 3:00 pm on Friday, followed by orientation at 5:45 and supper at 6:00. The retreat concludes at 4 pm on Saturday.

The investment for the overnight retreat is $125 and includes lodging in a regular room and three meals.
