When we have lost someone to suicide, we can often feel as if our world is falling apart, feelings of sadness, regret, guilt, longing, and loss all so consuming, it’s hard to imagine being able to feel alive again. You can feel so alone.

We want to help you to find what comes from within; to do the things that will help you to find new meaning in your life. We want to help you discover new ways of remembering your loved one and your lives together.  To understand that you are not alone and create connections with others who have experienced similar loss and feelings.

With that in mind, We Mind & Kelly Matters will be hosting their first ever bereavement retreat on the 4th to 6th April 2023.

Tofte Manor is located in a remote rural location near Bedford and our exclusive retreat will be managed by the team at We Mind & Kelly Matters who have all experienced their own grief and know first-hand how that feels.  You will experience a genuinely supportive environment in which we will help you discover new ways of managing your grief and finding ways to feel more comforted.

The venue offers truly gorgeous accommodation with tranquil gardens, a beautiful house for our use and magical labyrinths. All meals are included with vegetarian and vegan options available.

The timetable will include creative activities, gong bath, relaxation techniques and walks to name just a few, and whilst we encourage you to attend the activities, there is absolutely no requirement to join in. There is plenty of time just to be, get to know other attendees or to find your own space.

There is no cost for the retreat, however, if you wish to donate an amount, you are free to do so after. There are limited spaces, so to reserve your space, we are asking you to pay a £25 non-refundable fee using this link: https://bit.ly/3xsqjF9
