Hello...wow where does time go? I am so sorry for taking an absence from the blog. Things have been busy....and new things are on the horizon for Grief Sanctuary. Some exciting things are happening for Grief Sanctuary...and I will report on it soon.
Today I would like to focus on thanking all of the amazing people in Frankfort, Kentucky that invited me to be a part of their Compassionate Friends Regional Conference on March 19 and 20 of this year. As a Grief specialist, I must say this is one of the BEST grief conferences I have ever attended. The committee puts so much time and effort to pull off a healing weekend.
The Compassionate Friends is a national non-profit organization for bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents. It is ran by volunteers.
This past weekend I was honored to be invited inside their sacred circle to offer a Creative Arts workshop. I taught the workshop members the healing qualities of Expressive Arts and how to use it as a form of expression and healing for their grief journey. I am honored to report my workshop got some wonderful reviews. I am even more honored that I have already been asked to come back next year as a workshop presenter. As I am passionate about sharing and teaching about the healing benefits of Expressive/Creative Arts.
I encourage you to contact your local chapter of The Compassionate Friends if you have suffered the loss of a child, sibling or grandchild. The following is the link for their national website: http://www.compassionatefriends.org/home.aspx
This is a journey that you do not need to walk alone. Please reach out to your local chapter of Compassionate Friends. As well as, attend one of their regional or national conferences. The regional/national conferences and local chapters are ran by the experts. All of them have experienced the loss of a child, sibling or grandchild. So, they understand your pain.
Wishing all of you peace, comfort and a RETURN TO HOPE.
Love and many blessings to you,
