November 6 | Saturday 9 am – 11 a.m. Hawaii Time (12-2 p.m. PDT, 1-3 p.m. MDT, 2-4 p.m. CDT, 3-5 p.m. EDT)
Facilitated by Vicki Farley, DMIN, and Mary Kay Whitacre, DMIN
The memories, traditions, and celebrations of the holiday season can be a bittersweet reminder of the love you had and lost. It can be hard to face the merriment around you while your heart is breaking. A new normal has been thrust on you that can be hard to navigate. This session will be an opportunity to share your grief and plan for a meaningful holiday season with others who understand and in a way that is comfortable to you.
Please register by November 3rd at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the email address which you would like us to use when sending you the Zoom link. We look forward to seeing you online.
