      Will I ever be truly happy again?

      Who am I without him?

      I physically ache and have no energy or motivation.  What’s wrong with me?

      Will anyone ever understand me?

      Will the pain ever go away? 

       

        Have you found yourself asking any of these questions?  We widows often feel alone in our grief, that others don’t understand us.   Yet, you can find peace after the pain.

        What most people don't know is that grief is normal.  When we walk through grief, peace is on the other side.

        We widows just want to feel understood and to know how we can move forward without our life partners.

        Throughout Dale’s battle with cancer and when I ultimately lost him on March 16, 2009, I asked myself these same questions.  I was despondent.  We spent 20 years together, fought our ways through the challenges of life, and were raising two beautiful children.  I spent countless hours, silently crying and grieving, while he was in denial about his destiny.  I felt alone, isolated.  I knew I was facing my world without my husband, raising my children without their father, and I didn't have anyone to help me walk this path.  Having faced clinical depression in the past, I knew I could easily head down the road of despair with no way back.  As the only parent my kids would have, I wanted to make sure I showed them that their lives would move forward, as individuals and as a family.  Before I heard the word, "cancer," I had dreams and goals of my own as well. 

        That's when I made my decision to live, to actively walk the journey of grief.  And, I ultimately found happiness again.  I didn’t know it then, but I took myself through a process that I later penned as my 5-step process from pain to peace. 

       Without walking the path of my 5-step process, I shudder to think of where my children and I might be today, emotionally and otherwise.

        While I still miss Dale and have my times of sadness, I am living joyfully and peacefully.  I left my full-time job, now sharing my message of hope with other widows.  I am remarried.  My children are not just surviving; they are thriving.  

        I want to share my journey with you, to help you move through the agony of spousal loss and into a life of joy, happiness, and serenity. 

        I invite you to join me, along with other widows, for a special weekend of love, fun, connection, and healing at a retreat designed specifically for women like us.  I will offer you tools, guidance, and solutions for working through your pain, in an understanding, compassionate environment.

        The Widows Retreat is a different way of healing because only widows have walked our path. 

        We will be staying at French Lick Villas, in two spacious condominiums, complete with a Jacuzzis, saunas, fireplaces, and decks.  It is a perfect location for healing, reflection, and meditation.

       

        Normally, people pay nearly $1500 for an intimate, focused retreat.   I paid thousands of dollars and spent several years in support groups, therapy, private coaching, and seminars to learn what I will show you in one weekend, for just $697.

        **My personal 100% money-back guarantee: After completing the retreat, if you feel you have not progressed in your journey from pain to peace, I will return your $697 to you.

      INCLUDED:

      •     Program, exercises, and materials
      •     Accommodations for Friday and Saturday (rooming with other widows)
      •     Cocktail Party
      •     Breakfast & lunch during the program
      •     Dinner at a local restaurant Friday and Saturday
      •     Snacks and beverages Saturday and Sunday

      BONUS:

          One 45-minute follow-up one-on-one consultation with me personally after the retreat so you can have personal guidance after you start settling back into your normal environment, which is where most of us need the ongoing support.

      "Jacki has been an inspiration and continues to be an inspiration to me and to all of the widowed men and women in our HUGS spousal loss support group at St. Luke's United Methodist Church.  She is honest about her feelings, and she cares about all of us.  Her life's work consists of helping other widows through their grief, be it support for the individual, meditation, or speaking to groups of people about her experiences as a widow and how she has moved from pain to peace in widowhood.  I was actually able to connect with my husband for the very first time during my first one-on-one meditation session with Jacki.  She helps widows and widowers get to the points in their lives where they are at peace with where they have been, with who they are, and where they are going."Brenda KallinWidowed since 12/30/2011Indianapolis, Indiana

      To keep the retreat cozy and to give me as much time as possible with each of you, there are only 11 slots available, so please register today!

      Imagine what life would be like to feel alive again, without forgetting your husband's memory, but rather embracing his legacy and continuing on your path.  It's possible, and I want to help you.

      Peacefully Yours,

      Jacki Long-Prah
