  • "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."

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.
