About this Event

The Widow’s Journey Beyond Grief

Beginning Retreat

GP Eventworx, is proud to bring this transformative grief healing process by Denise Dielwart from its many years as an online program into live retreats!

Join Denise for a nurturing 3-day retreat for widows, stuck on their roller coaster of grief, who are ready to start healing themselves, live a joyous life, find their purpose, and re-discover who they are from the inside out.

You will be nurtured, nourished, and restored, ready to embrace the world again and be able to live life on your own terms. You will connect with like-minded widow soul sisters, all on the same journey as you, all coming together with one purpose: to heal and grow beyond their grief.

In this life-changing retreat you will:

  • Discover how to heal yourself from within.
  • Learn why trying to do it on your own, using outdated slow methods, is not working.
  • Learn how to change the emotional state that's impacting your life without your awareness.
  • Get off the grief roller coaster so that you can live your future life full of joy, purpose, and love.
  • Embrace having flow in your life again, even if you are struggling.
  • Understand that grief does not heal, YOU DO!

Our workshops are meant for all widows, not just the traditional definition of the word “widow”. Our definition is any woman who has lost her life partner; whether by marriage (husband or wife), domestic partnership, or fiancé, and regardless of their age and the length of their lost relationship.

About Denise Dielwart

In 2009 and at only 51, Denise lost her husband Maarten suddenly to an unexpected blood clot, and started sinking into a deep pit of anger, depression, loneliness, and isolation.

Everyone else around her was “getting on” with their lives, she was lost, lonely, and filled with fear of her future. She had no idea how she was going to live the rest of her life alone without him.

Denise needed help. She was broken and didn’t know how to work through her paralyzing grief and pain. After trying many methods such as counseling, attending grief share groups, and therapy, none of which worked long term, she realized that if she was to ever be whole again, she had to be the change. It was up to her to create her new life and joy journey.

Through her own personal grief healing journey, Denise studied and became a certified Grief Coach and Mentor, specializing in grief and works only with widows.

Denise is the creator of the F.L.O.W. method which produces dramatic and life changing results, within months instead of years.

Denise believes that grief is a normal and natural emotion when we experience such a great loss. However, grief does not define who you are, become your identity, or become your life sentence!

In Denise’s words: GRIEF DOES NOT HEAL – YOU DO!

What’s San Diego all about? And why should you stay a few extra days to enjoy this wonderful city?

Here’s an excerpt from the San Diego Tourism website:

The nation’s 8th largest city, San Diego may be known for its great weather, beautiful beaches and laid-back residents, but this dynamic urban metropolis hosts so many big sporting and cultural events that visitors might forget all about its relaxed SoCal character and vibe.

San Diego is not only California’s birthplace  it is also the state’s historic soul. Visitors can forego the history books and instead travel to San Diego for a thorough lesson on California’s beginnings.

Whether it’s visiting Cabrillo National Monument on Point Loma where California was first discovered in 1542, or exploring a gold mine in the mountains of Julian from the Southern California gold rush days of 1869, San Diego County is steep in historical journeys from corner to corner.
