About this trip

Bringing Light to Grief is for those open to new perspectives, ready to plant new seeds of life, passion, and purpose. In nature, seeds are buried in the darkness below the fertile soil. As the roots take hold, the seed realizes it must seek light to survive and thrive.


Retreaters will be taken on this seeding journey in a safe and secure environment, as Alison has experienced the pain, loss, and devastation of losing a child. She walks with you, allowing you to welcome transformative energies while holding your heart, providing a safe space to share your grief. A sharing that begins the forgiveness journey helping you release the shame or guilt, allowing you to step away from victimhood and into a new life of joy, fun, and laughter – a new way to honor your angel.


We will close the journey in alignment with the celebration of Dia de los Muertos ( Day of the Dead) in the town of Todos Santos.

What to Expect

You can expect an informal check-in process at the luxurious Hidden Leaf Baja Estate in Todos Santos, Mexico.  The sacred five-day grief retreat program then provides a safe cocoon where you can express your grief to Alison and a circle of compassionate listeners who understand what you are going through. 


The ‘Landscapes of Grief’ retreat allows you to gain tools that can help you deal with the pain of your loss, and it enables you to connect with others who share similar experiences.  


Do you feel ready to move on from your grief?   


The 'Landscapes of Grief' retreat gives you the opportunity in a safe and judgment-free setting to understand your grief journey better, reflect on your life, and enhance your coping skills.


Join Alison for a heartfelt online event discussing the challenging journey of grief.  

Your Retreat Guide - Meet Alison

Welcome, my name is Alison, to be honest, I hadn’t intended to become a Grief Coach. But after the loss of my beautiful 25-year old daughter Maya Rose, to a heroin overdose, it was something that reluctantly found me. Yet, this deep and powerful work seems to be a destination that I have been traveling toward my whole life.


I worked with heroin addicts in Hong Kong. I distributed relief supplies to third world islands in the Caribbean. And I did extensive grief and trauma work on the Crow Indian Reservation in Montana.

I have also known the joy and challenges of raising four children as a single mother, while doing intuitive healing work and therapeutic massage.


These days, I live in California with my Italian Mastiff, Blu. You’ll often find us hiking and meditating in Nature (which I consider the greatest healer of all.)


Speaking of healing, my heart goes out to everyone who has lost a loved one. But especially the parents of a child who has transitioned.


It is my mission and my honor to help bring wholeness to the hopeless. And help those who are lost find their way.


 

I am a certified master’s grief coach and I will work with you to gain the tools to reconnect and truly honor your child in love and light energy. All that is needed is a willingness and an open heart.
