Discover Your Purpose After Loss

Please note this program is specifically designed for survivors grieving the death of a military loved one.

The pain of loss ushers in hard questions. Why are we here? What is our purpose? The richness of life and the hollowness of grief can stir a sense of mission, but often this may be difficult to define.

TAPS Women's Empowerment programming helps us incorporate concepts of identity and spirituality into transformative goal-setting. We’ll walk you through the process of answering those tough questions so you can live mindfully and move confidently into the life you’ve imagined. You’ll also be provided with tools to help you act on those goals.

TAPS Women's Empowerment Week of Renewal - New to Grief

Survivors less than three years from their loss are invited to join us on a Women’s Week of Renewal - New to Grief retreat.   

After the death of a loved one, we may feel overwhelmed, disoriented, and alone. We are forced to find a new path, and doing so can feel frightening and exhausting. 

We’ll explore coping skills, share resources, and learn how grief affects body and mind. There will also be plenty of time for laughter, reflection, and sharing peaceful moments within a beautiful retreat center.  This will be a time to allow yourself the freedom to grieve and to heal - and also to share the experience with other women.

TAPS Women's Empowerment Retreats

Survivors more than three years from their loss can join us as we explore identity, purpose and direction at a Week of Renewal.   

We will look at how the past has shaped us, consider where we are now, and establish a framework for where we want to go as we move toward lives of joy and healing. Through art, journaling, mindfulness, and movement, we'll create and connect the visions of our lives, tapping into what we've always wanted — or things we want now.

TAPS also offers Women's Weeks of Renewal, tailored to women who want to reclaim and reinvent their lives. You'll leave with a vision, a plan and a sisterhood.
