Healing from Loss, Trusting the Rhythms of Life
Our grief arrives after loss, naturally, with a wisdom all its own. Instead of resisting or tolerating grief’s lessons, we are invited to embrace grief as our ally in healing.
Goals for this workshop: This day of input, prayer, and sharing will include conversations with creation - our teacher and resource. Losses of all kinds may be brought to the circle (death, estrangement, health, etc), though a space of 2 months after a death is suggested. Together, participants will rest in the safe space of God’s loving heart.

Instructor: Lisa Irish, MEd, MA, weaves her training as a Board Certified Chaplain into her current ministries of spiritual direction, retreat leadership and writing. Her newest book, Grieving - the Sacred Art: Hope in the Land of Loss, reminds the reader, “The strength you seek to survive grief’s demands is not found in resistance but within the tenderness of your loving heart.” Learn more and subscribe to her monthly Glimmers at www.lisairish.com

Cost: $25 (lunch included)
