Hope and Healing Workshop: Finding Light in the Darkness-Interactive Grief Workshop with Poetic Readings and Thoughtful Writing Questions

Join our virtual workshop where we will read passages from two of our beloved books about grief and loss, with optional opportunities to write and share responses from thoughtful writing questions. 

Everyone is welcome, whether you have experienced grief recently or a while ago. It is not necessary to have the books, but if you have copies, please bring them to the session. A comprehensive bibliography on grief and loss reading will be sent following the session.
