"47 Tips and Techniques for Healing After Loss"

The purpose of the workshop is to learn how to move through separation, divorce or death of a partner to acceptance and peace. We will explore self, social and spiritual aspects of the journey that no one willingly embarks upon, but that often leads us to know and love ourselves and our God in deeper ways than we've imagined.
