facilitated by Mary Kay Whitacre and Vicki Farley
Cost: free-will offering
What wisdom and hope do the changing seasons have to share with us about living into grief? How can they help us name our loss and reach out for healing? Where can they lead us to find peace in the midst of our pain? A new normal has been thrust on you that can be hard to navigate. This session will be an opportunity to share your grief and search for meaning with others who understand.
Please register by October 31. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an acknowledgement. We strongly encourage you to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contacts to ensure the delivery of emails regarding your retreat. We look forward to welcoming you online.
