Love Knows No Death™

Summer Grief Transformation Retreat 2021


As featured in the Netflix series 'Surviving Death,' 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.

Dr. Mo Theresa Hannah


Dr. Mo Therese Hannah, Professor of Psychology at Siena College, joins us to discuss grief, the afterlife, and life after loss.  She does this from the perspective of both a professional clinical psychologist and a bereaved parent.  She will be discussing the difficulties faced by those who have lost loved ones in addition to suggested strategies for coping with grief.  Many find hope after encountering evidence that our loved ones do indeed survive physical death, something that Dr. Hannah both recognizes and encourages.

With the help of mentors, he later received the validation he needed to continue on his life path. Since then, Joe has been working tirelessly to bring spirit closer to everyone here in the physical world.  Word spread about his abilities, and he now has a successful mediumship practice in New York. He communicates evidential messages from discarnate entities, as he believes this is the key in proving to his clients that their loved ones still exist

Grief Transformation Retreats
Forever Family Foundation Grief Retreats are designed as a complete experience. The weekend includes Spirit Communication, but also exposes the attendee to the various ways that we can continue our relationship with those loved ones who have crossed before us.  Attendees whose focus is solely on the medium readings are cautioned that the nature of mediumship is such that there are never guarantees that all in attendance will receive a reading. The focus at the retreat is on the total healing process, and those who wish only to make a medium connection to a loved one in spirit are urged to seek the services of a medium for a private reading in a different venue.
