Workshop Details

Many people in grief dread the holidays after a loss. Join grief expert David Kessler and grief yoga teacher Paul Denniston for a weekend of healing. You can discover how pain may be inevitable after loss, but suffering is optional. The heart aches, the body remembers, and the mind can get lost in all the guilt, what ifs, and regrets. Using many different techniques, you can learn how to deal with yearning and sadness, and to imagine a life beyond loss. David and Paul teach therapists ways to help clients find peace in loss and learn how to live again. Now you can learn to heal directly from them. Begin to remember your loved one with more love than pain and bring about a more meaningful new year. Please bring a yoga mat.
