Finding Hope, A PC Widows Retreat

a safe haven...

It started as a suggestion, a way for members of the PC Widows FB group to connect and tell our stories of  loss and resilience, to find comfort in our shared experience and a safe place to let the tears flow.

Space to be ourselves with no expectations, free to laugh or cry as the mood takes us with others who genuinely understand what we've been through.

 A luxurious opportunity for delight; wonderful food, gorgeous scenery, a little indulgence, and a glimmer of hope.

We are all in this together, with love and non-judgmental support we can start casting our eyes forward, finding our feet amid the wreckage, and feeling the safety of community beyond the uncertainty of loss. 

Welcome all.

You are here.

You matter. 

Day 1- Welcome

After your complimentary pick up from the airport you will be whisked to the reception of the historic resort and spa Hacienda del Sol where you will be greeted upon check in, shown to your room to rest ,relax and unpack your complimentary goodie bag. The afternoon is at your leisure for a dip in the pool, to "curl up" with a good book or enjoy an indulgent spa appointment. 

That afternoon at 4PM we will  begin with our Welcome Reception and first, powerful group share where we get to tell our stories (if you feel comfortable) and be inspired by other women who have walked a similar path, after which we will enjoy a light mixer followed by a fun and fantastic welcome feast and party!

Day 2- All About You

After a delightful breakfast, adventurous guests who wish to try their hand at something new, will head out for a lesson/demonstration in the ancient, soaring and surprisingly inspirational art of falconry! 

Next up ,will be your relaxing guided meditation/sound healing/yoga or cooking class!  Lunch  is on your own, so feel free to relax by the pool, nap/snack your room, or join new or old friends for a jaunt into one of Tucson's nearby and fabulous restaurants.  

 3PM is your opportunity to heal through giving as we enjoy light volunteering (without leaving the gorgeous property of course)  by constructing essential goodie bundles for disadvantaged children, women and pets of Southern Arizona. 

After volunteering we will have another powerful opportunity for sharing and mentoring, hear inspirational stories as well as practical tips from brave people who have survived the heartbreak and challenge of losing their spouse and learned to find hope in every sunrise. 

We will round off the day with a fabulous celebratory dinner!

Day 3- Farewell

Our  final day arrives all too soon! After a scrumptious included breakfast, take a quick final dip in the pool or enjoy one last turn around the amazing property before our "Stories to Remember"  final gathering and share, indelible friendships formed, meaningful memories formed as we head out to greet a new day bolstered by the love and knowledge that despite so much loss and so many tears, we are most certainly not alone. 

We are here. 

We matter.
