Regenerating connection, clarity and purpose after loss

Losing a loved one brings a level of grief into our lives that we never even knew existed. All of a sudden, we’ve gone from the lifelong connection with our loved one, to an empty void that feels impossible to fill.

Beyond the Widow, hosted by Suzanne Gomes, is the first of its kind to bring widowers together for the purpose of reconnection and to show there is life after loss.

The exclusive Beyond the Widow Retreat is for anyone who has lost a loved one and looking to meet other widowed people to connect with.

It doesn’t involve counselling sessions, it isn’t a match-making service, it doesn’t involve any activity if you don’t want to participate in it, but it does bring people together that want to move forward and find happiness with life again.

Meet your host, Suzanne

After becoming a widow at the age of 46 when my husband lost his fight with Leukaemia, I was looking for a group of widows to meet up with.  After searching for a retreat, it was apparent that no one was holding such events.

The exclusive Beyond the Widow Retreat is for people that have lost a loved one and are wanting to meet other widowed people. It doesn’t involve counselling sessions, it isn’t a match-making service, it doesn’t involve any activity if you don’t want to participate in it, but it does bring people together that want to move forward and find happiness with life again.

The three-night retreat will be held from Thursday 15th August to Sunday 18th August 2024, at the private and picturesque Obi Obi Homestead, in the Mary Valley, 2 hours from Brisbane and 10 minutes from Kenilworth.

The seven-bedroom Farmhouse at Obi Obi Homestead is part of a 200-acre working property and is situated on the banks of the Obi Obi Creek. It is the perfect place to relax, connect with your soul, ground yourself in the now and take in all nature provides to continue to heal your heart.
