Hawaii Regional Grief Conference 2021 - "Grief is the expression of Love for the one you lost ~ Let's Heal Together"

About this Event

POSTPONED TO JANUARY 21 & 22, 2021 DUE TO THE RISK OF COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS)

The Honolulu Chapter of The Compassionate Friends (TCF) is proud to host Hope, Healing and Aloha: Hawaii Regional Grief Conference 2021. With a lineup of prominent speakers on the subject of grief and healing, this conference presents an opportunity for our Hawaii community to experience a TCF conference in our own backyard. We also welcome with open arms those who reside outside of our great state and encourage you to join us for this important conference while spending time in Hawaii. No matter where we come from, we all share a desire to better understand and cope with the loss of our loved ones and the grief that subsequently entered our lives.

Beyond the wonderful speakers and workshops, we trust you will benefit from the opportunity to meet and connect with others who are experiencing the same indescribable pain. There is a great measure of comfort that we find in sharing our common experiences of loss. The conference will feature workshops on all aspects of grief, including on child loss and sibling loss. All the speakers have presented at TCF National Conferences and have made a big impact on those seeking hope.

Our conference also presents a unique opportunity for the professional community in Hawaii and beyond. Physicians, therapists, counselors and any professional helping patients suffering through grief can gain invaluable insights from these prominent national speakers.

Please take a moment to read through the Speaker Bios here for additional information about their backgrounds and presentation topics. There is something of interest for everyone, no matter where you are on your grief journey.

Hope, Healing and Aloha: Hawaii Regional Grief Conference 2021 will be held on January 21, 2021 (Thursday) and January 22, 2021 (Friday). The conference will be held at the Ala Moana Hotel in Honolulu. The Ala Moana Hotel is next to Ala Moana Shopping Center and is a few blocks from the edge of Waikiki (See Map). There are two room rates: Waikiki Tower - $159.00 for single/double occupancy and the Waikiki Tower Ocean View - $179.00 for single/double occupancy (plus porterage, excise tax and accommodation tax). These are excellent rates for this location in Honolulu. Ala Moana Hotel has created a dedicated website where hotel reservations for this event can be made. (This is separate from conference registration.) Since we postponed the conference, if you previously registered for a hotel room, your registration will be automatically cancelled. The new secure website to book a hotel room is: https://book.passkey.com/event. Upon registering you will be asked for specific information, but you will not be charged until you check out. We encourage you to reserve your hotel rooms as early as possible as we have a limited number of rooms available at these reduced rates and anticipate they will sell out early.

Parking at Ala Moana Hotel: If you are an overnight guest at the hotel, parking rates are $30/night for Self Park and $35/night for valet. Daily rates are available for $6 for 8 hours or $8 for 10 hours, with validation stamp (provided at Conference). Entrance to the parking garage is off of Mahukona Street.

Our Closing Ceremony and lunch (available for purchase) will be on Friday, January 22. Lunch is $50.00, but is not required in order to attend the Closing Ceremony. Wristbands will be used to identify those who purchased lunch. It will be a buffet lunch with two entrees, four types of salad, one starch, fresh vegetables, baked luncheon rolls and dessert.
