Grief Center Offerings in November

Hope for the Holidays

If you are facing grief at the “most wonderful time of the year,” or would like to support someone who is, please join us for this seminar on 12/7 while we find Hope for the Holidays. The holiday focus on togetherness, gratitude, and celebration can present a challenge for those of us who have lost someone important and make the space they left empty all the more real. Register here.

Tinsel & Tears Workshop

Join us on 12/8 for this holiday workshop, designed specifically for grieving children and adults of all ages.

SoulCollage® (Virtual)

SoulCollage® is an expressive arts process that uses the power of images to encourage self-discovery. Each month on the second Wednesday (12/14) we will add to our incredible deck of cards and deepen our understanding of ourselves through their use. Facilitated by Alive’s grief counselor and trained SoulCollage® Facilitator Terri Kuberski. Register here.
