About Wellness Day

Grieving the death of a loved one is a complex journey. It is a unique process for every individual, with no easy path or timetable to follow. How we feel, what the loss means to us, and the way we choose to cope with our grief differs for each of us.

The journey we face after the death of a loved one is very difficult and stressful. This seminar is designed to give attendees an opportunity to learn new coping skills, better understand their feelings, and come away with a renewed sense of hope for the future.


With your registration, you will select one workshop to attend in the morning and one in the afternoon:

A. Grief Pathways: Beginning the Journey
Discover ways to recognize, accept and cope with the emotions associated with the death of a loved one.

B. Hope for the Holidays When You Are Grieving
Learn strategies for bearing special days and holidays, and finding meaningful ways to remember your loved one.

C. Chair Yoga
Explore your grief through simple yoga techniques.

D. Writing in Grief: Healing Through Words
Explore your grief through easy writing exercises. Various writing styles are introduced. No writing experience is necessary.

E. Keeping Memories Alive
Create a personal keepsake as a way to honor and remember a loved one. Participants will leave the workshop with a tangible symbol of love and remembrance. No artistic talent required.
