Previous retreat participants, Patrick and Ashley Sullenger, speaking about their retreat experience.
” Ohana Oasis brought together a group of strangers all in the same boat who were able to share openly, honestly and freely with one another. It helped us think and talk about our pain and challenges.” – Anthony’s Parents
Ohana means family and an oasis is a refuge. Ohana Oasis is a safe and peaceful space for bereaved parents to spend a week beginning a new way of life. Retreats create a revitalizing personal experience for each parent, as well as a safe space to be with others who have gone through the painful death of a child. Through Ohana Oasis they can hear and share their own fears, struggles, questions, joys and hopes echoed by others.
