Finding the Words to Articulate Our Grief and Our Grief Needs


Sep 26 2023

Facilitator: Colin Campbell

Description: Too often grievers feel alone and abandoned in their grief, suffering secondary loss of community. Campbell shares concrete ways of building our community as we mourn, so that no one grieves alone. He also explores an active approach to grieving which involves leaning into the healthy pain of loss, while minimizing the unhelpful suffering which can often accompany it.

Where: Online via Zoom

Cost: FREE! Reserve your spot on Pinelawn’s Eventbrite page
