Grief: The Journey of Healing
All of us are touched at some time in life by death and significant loss. Navigating the course through grief and learning to live again without our beloved other or the change that has occurred in life can be daunting and overwhelming. The journey of healing leads us into the dark hallways of denial, bargaining, anger, depression and finally at acceptance and rebuilding our life where we learn to come to terms living without our sacred other, whether it be a parent, sibling, spouse or friend, or the condition we held scared.
Grief can be overwhelming. We experience loss on a regular basis. Often we overlook its impact and rare are the appropriate public places to share and process such losses. Losses may include: loss of mobility, health, job, relationship, pet, home, emotional stability, a way of life, death and others. “Grief: The Journey of Healing” is an evening of remembering our beloved other, reflecting upon the life shared, coping with significant loss through death or other circumstances and the healing process while allowing ourselves the space and support to express our grief and loss through contemplation, reflection, music, silence and ritual.
Not all loss is the passing of someone in death. Loss occurs when a relationship ends, when health is compromised, mobility is lost, career changes occur, we lose a house due to economics, any place where significant change occurs.
Mercy Hospice and Lynn E. Fritz, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, are collaborating to offer this evening for all those grieving a loss. Join Lynn E. Fritz, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Mercy Hospice Volunteers, and guest presenter, Sue MillerBorn, on Tuesday, September 9, 2014 at 7-8:30 PM.
