This bereavement program sponsored by the New Denver Hospice Society is modeled after the successful program developed by Susan Breiddal of Victoria Hospice Society. Facilitators Sue Mistretta, M.A. (Silverton), and Alice Watson, M.E.d. (Burton) will provide a safe, supportive & confidential space for participants to explore their grief and to discover a healing journey that cultivates compassion and acceptance for the array of intense feelings & confusing thoughts experienced through loss. The program is open to anyone who is going through a grieving process after losing someone close to them, whether the loss is recent or in the distant past. We will explore grief through writing exercises (journaling), collage, and other simple art processes. Participants will learn hands-on skills for dealing with life after loss and working through difficult emotions. No experience in writing or art is needed. Participants in past workshops have found this workshop highly beneficial to their understanding of the grief process and with adapting to life after loss.
PROGRAM FEE: $50.00 (All learning materials are provided).
