If you are suffering from the pain of grief and loss, you may be experiencing intense feelings common amongst people who grieve, such as anger, guilt, confusion, loneliness, and sadness. In this workshop, we intend to create a gentle space to learn about the nature of grief, what to expect, and tools for healing and proactive coping. We will look at how to find meaning after loss to help transform grief into a more peaceful, spiritual, communal, and hopeful experience.  

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Expand understanding of the nature of grief (e.g., reactions, models, needs) 
  2. Differentiate organic grief from depression and complicated grief 
  3. Lean tools for healing, comforting, and spirituality sustaining ourselves
  4. Discuss how to find meaning and purpose in loss
