Pathway: Embracing Life After Loss

Anyone who is lucky enough to love is also likely to know the pain of loss. It’s a natural part of life, and many people need support and guidance to get through it. Director of Spiritual Wellness Stephanie Ludwig, PhD, MA, MDIV, and diverse Ranch professionals lead this immersive program that can help you feel your grief within a safe community in a nurturing environment.

Through supportive group experiences, the PATHWAY program can help you accept grieving as an invitation to healing and growth. Learn how it’s possible to experience loss honestly while coping with everyday life and restoring your spirit. 

As our gift of health to you, we’re waiving the usual $500 program tuition through 2020.
