A Widows Tale helps widowed women recover from the death of their spouse and rebuild healthy lives.
It was developed with a grant from the National Storytelling Network and now offers both the one-on-one Widow’s Recovery System and the day-long A Widows Tale retreats.

A Widows Tale retreats are fully sponsored events that create a sacred community where widowed women can share their stories of loss and love and learn new strategies for recovering from grief. This full-day event typically lasts from 9:30a.m.-4:30p.m. Retreats are facilitated by A Widows Tale founder Donna Marie Todd, a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist® and widow.
“What I liked was not only the sharing with other widows, which is SO wonderful, but also receiving the expertise of a widow leader. I would tell other widows to GO!!” Susan
