Mindful Grief Workshop with Pause to be Present

RESCHEDULED TO TUESDAY, MAY 17. Registration has been extended to May 16!

Grief and loss are deeply felt and part of our human experience. What can bring us greater ease and peace in the midst of pain is letting go of our resistance to it. There is no one right way to grieve and there is no easy way through it. We can learn to let the waves of grief, loss, heartbreak, and longing roll through us. And in our grief, we can remember how lucky we are to have had someone in our lives who touched us so deeply and who we loved so much. They are not lost but, instead, will always be a part of who we are. In this workshop, participants will mindfully witness and accept the truth of our human experience – that life is constantly changing and that with life comes death. Through learning, meditation, and discussion we will hold ourselves and each other gently and lovingly in the midst of our pain.
