the September 24-29th 2017 retreat is now full

meet amelia

Hi, my name is Amelia and I am a yoga teacher and small business owner from Winnipeg, Canada. My firstborn son Landon James was born on July 8 2014, via emergency c-section after his heart rate dropped suddenly during labour. He was resuscitated and put on life support, but due to severe brain damage from being without enough oxygen for too long, his little body started to shut down. He was removed from life support on July 11, and on July 12 he passed away peacefully in our arms after breathing on his own for a precious 17 hours.

about the retreat

I created Landon's Legacy Healing Retreats because I wanted to connect more deeply with other moms who have experienced similar losses, and to create a sisterhood of empowerment and healing. The retreat offers a unique opportunity for bereaved mothers to come together and explore a variety of holistic healing practices at a beautiful lakeside resort in the Whiteshell, Manitoba, Canada. 

So far we've hosted two retreats (2015 and 2016) and 50 moms from 7 different countries have attended. The moms still keep in touch almost daily in our Facebook groups, plan meet-ups and reunions, and have become a close-knit group of friends who continue to support each in many ways.
