Love Never Dies Children's Retreat

When we experience loss, we need good therapy, which is provided in Love Never Dies. Dr. Turndorf’s new therapeutic techniques are amazing! She shows us the way to heal our hearts and find lasting love. – John Gray, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus


Connecting Souls on Earth and Spirit Planes

There is nothing more heartbreaking than a child who is grieving the loss of a parent, close relative, sibling or friend.

It is so common for adults to feel at a complete loss...not knowing what to say or do to help that grieving child.

While traditional counseling says you need to help a child move on and let go of his/her loved one...


I know that the only way to heal is to help kids reconnect with their loved ones in spirit.

I recently held a live Love Never Dies Children's Retreat in which I guided grieving children to reconnect with their loved ones in spirit.

That retreat was recorded for the benefit of those who couldn't attend live.

I am excited to share this Love Never Dies Children's Retreat recording so that you can help your child (or any grieving child close to you) to reconnect and heal.

Dr. Turndorf has relationships figured out. If you want a great relationship, you must listen to her show, read her book and follow her 10-step method for lasting love. – Jack Canfield, # 1 New York Times bestselling author of Chicken Soup for the Soul

Beyond Traditional Grief Counseling

We have never seen anything like Dr. Turndorf’s Trans-Dimensional Grief Therapy Method – Reid Tracy, CEO and President of Hay House Publishing

I hold a Ph.D. in Psychology and have developed a revolutionary method for reconnecting with loved ones after loss called Trans-Dimensional Grief Therapy. Many know me as Dr. Love, the famed relationship expert and founder of and host of Ask Dr. Love radio. I also host the Love Never Dies show, the most listened to hour on the Hay House Radio network where I share my new Trans-Dimensional method with my Hay House listeners. The bestselling author of several books, including the number 1 International Bestseller Love Never Dies, I have also experienced loss of a loved one…

After suddenly losing my husband of 27 years, I was called to help others understand, process and heal from grief, and more importantly, I was summoned to help people reconnect with their loved ones. My personal experiences of reconnection, at first seemingly unbelievable, will leave you with goose bumps and an ever-growing desire to learn more about communicating with your departed loved ones.

As a result of these first-hand experiences of communicating with my husband in spirit, I knew I had to heed this call to show others how to experience the profound healing that reconnecting brings. This prompted me to create a Love Never Dies Retreat to share all I’ve discovered as a professional therapist, relationship expert and from my own personal experiences of reconnection in spirit with my departed husband. During this retreat, you’ll see, just as I have, that love never truly dies.

What Kids Experience with the Love Never Dies Children's Retreat:

My 5-Part Process for Reconnecting, Healing and Living Fully Again includes:

Overcome Obstacles and Beliefs that Can Block Reconnecting. I will share the common issues you face when trying to reconnect with your loved ones and also how false beliefs and religious teachings may be preventing you from staying in contact with spirits.

  • Let go of misguided teachings regarding the afterlife.
  • Understand why heaven is here and now…
  • Learn why we aren't supposed to wait until we die to reconnect with loved ones in spirit.
  • Discover why letting go and moving on is dead wrong!
  • Overcome misguided fears about the spirit realm.
  • Let go of false, inaccurate religious teachings that block reconnection.
  • Overcome the wrong belief that reconnecting prevents us from moving on with our lives.

Create a State of Receptivity. In order to receive the messages your loved ones are sending, you must be open and receptive to these messages. I share many techniques to help you expand your senses and heighten your receptivity.

  • Turn on your natural, God-given ability to reconnect with loved ones in spirit.
  • Create "Pockets of Peace" that are essential for sending and receiving spirit communications.
  • Access your receptivity to spirit during twilight states.
  • Discover the right practice for you for opening your receptivity (is it Chi Gong, Tai Chi, self-hypnosis, prayer, deep-breathing or meditation?).
  • Enter a trance.
  • Use nature to heighten your receptivity.
  • Practice various guided meditations to access the part of your psyche that can communicate with spirit.
  • Explore fun exercises to open and expand all your senses.

Recognize the Signs of Spirit Presence. This part is all about the signs. What are they? How will you know they are real? I share my very powerful examples in order to show you how prevalent the signs of spirit presence really can be once you know what to look for.

  • Discover all the signs of spirit presence often sufficient to begin the process of reconnecting.
  • Using my personal examples, I’ll show you all the ways that spirit is knocking on the door of your heart.
  • Discover the myriad and astonishing ways that spirit influences the material world and defies time, space, gravity and the laws of science.

How to Communicate with Loved Ones in Spirit. Now that you recognize the signs of spirit presence, it’s time to learn how to communicate with your loved ones. There are many ways to communicate and I will expand on key ways to help you discover how your loved ones are trying to reach you.

  • Learn how to recognize when spirit is using thought induction and mind melding to speak with you.
  • Communicate in dreams, using automatic writing, through prayer, and through Open Vessels (humans are especially open and animals who are naturally open)
  • Use Earthly Props, such as electronic devices, to communicate.

How to Use my Dialoguing with the Departed Technique to Heal Unfinished Business. Sometimes, loved ones leave us suddenly or without closure. This is a very safe and peaceful way to find comfort and closure with loved ones who may have caused pain while on earth.



I encourage you to give this gift of healing to your grieving child, or a grieving child that you know.

Wishing you all the love in this world and beyond!

Dr. Jamie Turndorf


What Retreat Attendees are Saying About the Love Never Dies Children's Retreat:

I am a psychiatrist and I attended the Love Never Dies retreat with my eight-year old to help her handle her grief. I, myself, was also drowning in sadness and anger at my husband for dying and leaving me with two young kids. And, I was also so angry at him for pushing me away before he died. In dialoguing with him I discovered that was trying to prepare me for losing him. This discovery miraculously dissolved my resentment toward him! As for my daughter, Dr. Turndorf brilliantly uncovered the source of her feeling of emotional numbness--she was furious with her father for leaving her. As Dr. Turndorf guided her to dialogue with her dad about her anger, we all witnessed her numbness magically vaporize before our eyes. Then we all shared in her joy as she reconnected with her dad and felt his loving arms surrounding her. There are no words to describe how miraculously healing the retreat was for me and my daughter. I am eternally grateful to Dr. Turndorf for literally saving our lives! – Dr. Lilliana A.

I attended the retreat remotely along with my two young sons. I was worried that my boys wouldn't be able to connect with the live attendees. But, in no time, everyone, from the youngest kids to the teens, and the adults, were all joined together like a long-lost family. Amazingly, my older boy, Jack, was totally involved for the entire 4-hours! What a joy it was to see him dialogue with his dad in spirit and obtain the guidance he needed. And, the other kids who attended assisted him, and he was so helpful and healing to the other live and virtual participants. Dr. Turndorf's Love Never Dies retreats are a slice of heaven on earth. The love and healing is beyond belief!- Jacqueline N.

First off, I would like to thank you for inviting me to attend this retreat! I know I’m a little late with getting back to you but I have just been swamped with class and finals and such. The retreat was a very opening experience for me. I realized that Spirit is always trying to contact me; but, sometimes I just need to take a minute and listen to them. I learned that even though I’m very open, I still need to practice opening my senses more. After connecting and hearing Maria’s son and Lilly’s husband I realized that I want to be able to help others get through their grief and reconnect with their loved ones. To see their expressions and gratitude after they connected, it was just amazing. Surprisingly enough, since the retreat Spirit has not stopped; everywhere I go Spirit is contacting me and guiding me. Normally I’d only hear them calling my name—as if they were looking for me—but now I’ve started to see “clear shadows:” almost like a diffraction of light that looks like a person’s shadow on a wall but instead of being dark and colored black, it’s clear. I’ve still been finding pennies as well; for example, yesterday someone one from Spirit threw the penny at me—I know it was from Spirit because no one else was in the room with me—the penny was dated 1994, I still don’t know who the message was for but I know it is important.

Again thank you for inviting me to the retreat and teaching me to connect with Spirit.

In love and light,

-Bobby K.

Hi, Jamie-

This was my second retreat so I knew, going in, a bit about what to expect. I believe my expectations were surpassed this time. :) I was deeply moved by how open and accepting every member of the group was. They were just so primed to be there and have this beautiful experience. It just made everything "flow" so naturally and with such ease.

The time FLEW by because we were in spirit for the entire retreat. I am tempted to say that I was sad to see our time together end, however ... we are a soul family and that means we are together infinitely and always. What a completely lovely thought. It brings me such joy to feel a part of something as life-changing as your work (and our beloved Jean's work). In my own life, I see how it makes a difference on a DAILY if not even HOURLY basis.

I would suggest nothing for "improvement". Sincerely! Nothing could have or should have been any different. It was perfect for me. Even now, 24 hours later, I can still feel everyone with me. I'm so happy for all of us and the openings we had and will continue to have. I truly sense how we ARE changing the world through love and connection (re-connection).

This is the most important thing I have ever been a part of in my whole life. I'm so honored to have been chosen to be on this journey with you, Jamie, and you, Jean, and the rest of the soul family.

With infinite love,

-Candi & Killian
