Description: We welcome all people who are in the midst of, or have experienced grief who reside in Tompkins or Cortland County, and there is no cost. No one will be required to speak about their grief or “why” they are participating in the retreat, but all should be supportive of each other knowing the reason we have been brought together. There will be activities and structured time, but participants can also spend time alone if that is their preference. All participants are responsible for their own transportation. An information sheet with more details will be sent after registration is complete.
This program is made possible in full with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants program from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of the office of the Governor and NYS Legislature, and from Tompkins County; administered by the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County.
Registration is required by July 5th. We currently have a wait list for the full weekend. For Saturday only registration is open until July 13th. Use the form below. For more information contact the Bereavement staff at 607-272-0212 or send an email.
