During the holiday season, gatherings and traditions that used to bring a sense of connection can instead trigger feelings of sadness, isolation and stress in those grieving the loss of a loved one. Although such feelings are normal – and even part of the grief-healing process – they can be hard to navigate when expectations of celebration, good cheer and joy abound. During this Zoom session, we will explore ways to be present to our losses in whatever form the holidays do or do not take. Practices for intentionally quieting the body and mind, ways to give time and space to your grief during the holiday season, writing exercises, guided meditations and more will all be part of this retreat.

This program is offered with the support of the Norman L. Gillette Sr. Scholarship Fund.
