Love Knows No Death - 6th Annual Grief Transformation Retreat

This is a very special all-inclusive weekend of like-minded people and experienced facilitators coming together to SHARE, LEARN, EXPLORE, AND DISCOVER. This retreat is being held in an intimate center within a bucolic setting, and features a combination of small break-out sessions and general presentations, all designed to open minds to the reality that there is life beyond physical death. This retreat will be limited to a maximum of 50 attendees, and smaller break-out sessions will further enhance the overall experience.

  • "I was lucky enough to attend their annual grief retreat in July and it was an experience that helped me tremendously. Being around people who were going through the same thing as me and searching for answers and contact from our loved ones. I love that they focus on science and proof that our consciousness survives our physical body."
  • "I attended a Forever Family retreat in Connecticut and it truly changed my life! Beautiful setting, warm, caring, knowledgeable staff and presenters, and great food and accommodations. Can't wait to go back!" - Marita
  • "I attended the weekend conference last July and the information, love and compassion I received from the FFF and their volunteers exceeded my expectations. I hope more people in need of their services find them - I am so grateful I did!" - Lisa

Lynn Kathleen Russell

FEATURE FACILITATOR:  Lynn Kathleen Russell

Many of us wonder if there is any order and meaning to the universe, and how that relates to life after death. Lynn Russell, who has researched more than 2,500 cases of near death experiences, has recognized the patterns and believes she has the answers to some of our deepest questions.

In addition to her activities as an author, lecturer and researcher, Lynn Russell has been a professional family counselor for the past 28 years. Her book, The Wonder of You: What Near-Death Experiences Tell You About Yourself, focuses on near-death experiences that offer readers insight to their own spiritual journey. Through her research she discovered deeply hidden messages about the world, life and the paths we all travel, and uncovered profound messages that she wants to share with others. She offers answers to one specific profound question, “What is our reality and why do we exist?” and conducts workshops that merge science and spirituality.  Her research findings confirm that we do indeed survive physical death and have access to unlimited possibilities.

Forever Family Foundation Certified Medium Gina Simone Gina Simone is a certified medium of Forever Family Foundation who has felt the presence of spirit since the age of eleven.  As is often the case, she at first dismissed her abilities due to fear and the inability to process what was happening.  However, after significant study and mentorship she embraced all of her abilities and blossomed into the evidential medium she is today.  In addition to connecting to spirit for messages, she also teaches her clients how to communicate and connect on their own with their loved ones, as she believes tapping into one’s own innate intuitive ability is something to which we should all aspire.  Gina’s website is

Priscilla Gale of Sacred Song Reiki

Priscilla Gale is a life-long spiritual seeker. Her commitment to her own spiritual journey, and the adventure of living every day to its fullest, enables her to help clients explore their fullest potential. She teaches that the true experience of oneness and wholeness is based in recognizing everyone is far more than just the sum of the parts, but a vitally important part of a greater whole of the heart of humanity. From a spiritual and energetic point of view, Priscilla teaches that if you accept that we are all connected to a Universal Mind having been spun from that loving hand of the Divine, then are we not all divine, and therefore also all love. If we are all love, and have within us that which is divine, then we are all One; one spirit, all connected to that one universalmind/intelligence.   Her website is
