Did the death of your mother divide your life into a "before" and "after"?
Do you ever feel "stuck" at the age you were when your mother died?
Do you often feel adrift without a mother's guidance and care?
Do you sometimes feel more connected to a mother who died than to the mother who lived?
Have you ever longed to sit in a circle of women who "get it"?
If your answer to any of these questions is "Yes", Motherless Daughters Retreats may be for you.
free call about 20-somethings mother loss
On July 27th, Hope Edelman, author of Motherless Daughters, and Allison Gilbert, author of Passed and Present, offered a free conference call to more than 700 women. They discussed the ins and outs of mother loss in your 20s, including living with grief during life events common for 20-somethings (graduations, weddings, having a child, etc.) and beyond, and shared supportive information and healing strategies, and answered pre-submitted questions from listeners.
