Heather Stang will offer a workshop on Sunday, November 12 from 1:30 – 3:00 PM to discuss ways you can manage grief during the holiday season. The class is offered by donation, however pre-registration is requested by November 11th.
Learn How To Cope With Holiday Grief & Stress
The holidays are stressful enough when you are not grieving. If you have experienced a major loss, this holiday season will be different than the last, and whether you share your grief openly, or keep things to yourself, managing your internal and external struggles will be less challenging once you master a few basic coping skills and plan how you want to approach the holidays.
During this workshop, we will explore how you can manage the painful and mixed feelings that accompany grief, maintain your physical health, and explore how new and old traditions and rituals can support you during this tough time. We will discuss the three principles of self-compassion: self-kindness, common humanity and mindfulness, and consider how they can help you navigate the holiday season.
By Donation: $10-20 Suggested.
