Ritualizing Loss and Grief – October 15-17, 2021

October 15-17, 2021

Facilitator and Guide : Fr. Jim Clarke

For thousands of years human beings have honored their grief and myriad losses through storytelling and ritual making.  In this retreat, we will explore this ancient practice and apply it to our contemporary situation through input, reflection, storytelling and creating our own rituals.  This is an active retreat whereby you can experience a change in your perception and experience of your life.


With an extensive academic background in the fields of spirituality, adult education, counseling, ritual and depth psychology, Fr Jim Clarke currently serves as Coordinator of Spiritual Formation for the Permanent Diaconate Office for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and Senior Lecturer of Spiritual Theology at Loyola Marymount University.  He is also an Associate Spiritual Director at the Cardinal Manning House of Prayer for Priests. 

Fr. Jim’s books and CD series serve to enhance his continuing public ministry of retreats, workshops, and conferences throughout the United States for priests, women religious, parish and school staffs as well as parishes at large. His newest book is: Here Comes Life! A Guide to Wholeness and Happiness.
