Grief and the Holidays Workshop

For many of us, the upcoming holiday season will be a reminder of someone we love who isn’t here to celebrate with us the way they used to. The painful circumstances of losses in our lives can feel unacceptable, but research shows us that acceptance can be a partner in our grief.

Heading into the holidays with an empty seat at the table can be so difficult. Memories come flooding back as we remember their voice, their laughter, their touch. It is said that we have the power of memory so we can enjoy roses in winter. Memories can also trigger sadness.
Learn how to accept what is, let go of what was, and embrace what can be. This does not mean forgetting—it means honoring our loved ones while compassionately being present in this moment as well.

We invite you and your family to join us for a special heartfelt evening with Kim & Nancy from The Wisdom Coalition as they try to help you find joy in this holiday season. Give yourself a bit of compassion and join us Thursday, December 8, at 6:30 p.m.

RSVP by December 2 by calling 610-434-6304. For more information, visit
