Due to popular demand, Gary will once again be offering this special workshop on Coping with the Holidays. If you weren’t able to attend the last one, make sure to register!
Holidays mark the passage of time in our lives. They are part of the milestones we share with each other. But since holidays are for being with those we love the most, how on earth can anyone be expected to cope with them when a loved one has died? For many people, this is the hardest part of grieving, when we miss our loved ones even more than usual. How can you celebrate togetherness when there is none? When you have lost someone special, your world losses its celebratory qualities. Holidays only magnify the loss. The sadness feels sadder and the loneliness goes deeper. The need for support may be the greatest during the holidays. You can and will get through the holidays. Rather than avoiding the feelings of grief, lean into them. It is not the grief you want to avoid, it is the pain. Grief is the way out of the pain. There are a number of ways to incorporate your loved one and your loss into the holidays.
 Join group facilitator Gary Sturgis in this workshop to find out how.
