Preparing for Grief, Embracing It and Moving Through It
ABODE Academy 6 is all about grief – how we can plan and prepare for it and how we move through it – whether it be our sadness for the loss of our loved ones or our loved ones’ sadness for, well, the loss of us!
Join us for five complimentary sessions (via Zoom) on this basic human emotion and ways we can make the most of our grief.
Please RSVP for any or all of these five sweet (and free) programs, in partnership with Willow EOL Education & Planning. If you’d like to make a tax-deductible gift to ABODE, please use our DONATE button.
Five Thursdays starting April 13
5 Steps for Successful End of Life Conversations: A Willow Workshop™
Thursday, April 13
Have you ever started to talk about some aspect of end-of-life planning with someone and got shut down? Or maybe you’ve been wanting to talk about it, but you’re lost on how to even broach the topic? Perhaps you have ideas in your mind about how your family and friends are going to react, and it’s just too uncomfortable to go there.
Many of us understand the importance of preparing for our someday, one-day, inevitable death while you’re still healthy enough to do that. But talking about death in a death-phobic and death-denying culture can be a challenge. The thought of grieving our losses can be far too overwhelming. Yet, the more we talk about it, the more smoothly our grief process will go.
Whether you’re thinking about your own end-of-life planning or you want to facilitate plans for someone else, let’s get the conversation started!
In this workshop you will:
- Articulate your core values and how they impact your living and dying.
- Get present to your hopes and fears around your inevitable death.
- Gain some clarity about who and what matter most.
Conscious Health, Personal Care & Final Wishes: A Willow Workshop™
Thursday, April 20
