Journeying in Grief through the Holidays    
Laura Gormley, SSL

Saturday, October 31,  9:00am to 3:00pm

Journeying through our grief for the loss of a loved one is a difficult task as we move through the many aspects of all the losses involved in our grief. During this time of year, the thought of facing the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday season can be an extra burden, filling us with dread. We will consider possible ways of preparing for and participating in these occasions while honoring the memory of our absent loved one. We will also reflect on our ongoing everyday experience of grief, its various dimensions and ways that may help us along the path. Lunch included.
