Grief and the holidays

GrievingIf you are grieving the loss of a loved one, you are keenly aware that the holidays are fast approaching. You may wonder how you will make it through them. If you live in the Coachella Valley there is a support group forming that may help you.

I want to alert you to a 3-session Support Group that will meet for the first time on Sunday, October 31, 2010 at my parish church, St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Palm Desert, CA. Each session will be facilitated by Kathleen Dale, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

If you are grieving a recent loss or anticipate the holiday season bringing up grief from past losses, please join us for this three-part series. The purpose of the group is to provide you with a context to develop your personal plan and a supportive place to reflect and review. There are no requirements around type of loss or time frame of such losses. Read more about this opportunity.

The article cited above will give you the contact information you will need. As Kathleen states in her description: “consider our Grief Group your personal ‘bridge over troubled waters.’”

Kathleen also maintains a website for the benefit of those seeking information or help: Peace comes from within
