From Grief to Peace: Journaling for Life after Loss

Facilitator: Heather Stang

Description: A grief journal does more than record your day-to-day experience; it helps you organize your thoughts, process traumatic events, and find meaning through your lived experience. There is no shortage of research to support this powerful grief tool —benefits include decreased depression and anxiety, improved memory and increased immune functioning.

Journaling also gives you a safe place to process your feelings, record precious memories, and reflect on the often-asked question, who am I now?


Heather Stang, author of the guided journal From Grief To Peace, will jump-start your therapeutic journaling with practical tips and heart-centered writing prompts in this experiential workshop. She will review several journaling techniques so you can choose one that fits your lifestyle and personality. You will also learn practical tips for quieting the inner critic, moving through writer’s block, and coping with difficult emotions when they inevitably arise.

You don’t need to be a “good writer” to participate or benefit from journaling. Just bring something to write on (journal, paper, spiral notebook) and your favorite writing tool, or open a blank document on your computer or tablet if you prefer to type.
