Purpose: We look forward to having you join us for this evening of hope and healing. Someone in your life has died. You are now faced with many critical questions related to your grief and mourning. This compassionate program will help you explore these questions and provide you the support you need.

Why This Program: The capacity to love requires the need to mourn when someone you love dies. Don’t miss this opportunity to spend an evening with one of North America’s leading grief counselors and authors. Dr. Wolfelt can and will help you feel support in your grief.

Agenda: Among the content areas to be explored in this program are the following:

  • Will I grieve this loss, or will I mourn this loss?
  • Will I befriend the feelings that flow from this loss, or will I deny, repress, or inhibit them?
  • Will I be a “passive witness” in my grief?
  • Will I embrace the uniqueness of my grief experience, or will I assume I mourn like everyone else?
  • Will I identify the six needs of mourning and work on them, or will I fall victim to the cliché “time heals all wounds?”
  • Will I move toward “reconciliation” of my grief, or will I believe I must come to a complete “resolution” of my grief?
  • Will I embrace my transformation from this loss, or will I keep trying to get my old self back?
  • Will this loss add to my “divine spark,” or will it take away my life force?

Who Should Attend: This compassionate program will be helpful to anyone who is experiencing grief in their lives. If you know anyone who may benefit from this opportunity to embrace hope and healing, please let them know about this program. We look forward to having you with us.
