Fire & Rain Soul Spas® are uplifting retreat holidays for widows and widowers. On these pages for support professionals we have summarised information that will help you assess if someone you work with could be interested and benefit from such a break:
Who the retreats are for
Fire & Rain Soul Spas® are a more relevant alternative to other quality holiday offers such as health spa retreats, singles’ holidays and spiritual retreats. They are for women and men who have become widowed between a few months and several years ago and wish to take a break surrounded by a beautiful natural environment and find new inspiration. Participants are usually at a stage on their healing journey where they still feel fragile and are trying to make sense of the “new normal”.
Our retreats don’t replace but rather complement professional support such as one-to-one or group counselling.
Soul Spa outcomes
The intended outcomes for retreat participants are:
> New friendships – participants feel they are not alone
> Feeling less hopeless
> Mindfulness techniques can help to get more clarity, inner peace, new sense of perspective
> Benefits of exploring a new location – feeling enriched and inspired
> Allowing creative flow – do what they love doing or try out something new (e.g. abstract painting)
> New self care ideas – better sense of what feels good and what to build into one’s life
Feedback has confirmed guests are experiencing these outcomes. Examples of guest feedback are available here.
