About the event
Grief is a part of life. It is tremendously hard. And it can be magnificently beautiful. Whether you've lost a loved one, dealt with significant health issues, or had someone in your life who has experienced loss or pain, the process of making sense of such an event for many takes them into new emotional territory. In this workshop, Laura will help normalize the reality that we humans must grieve. In all its mess and in all its glory.
As a nationally recognized speaker and Certified Grief Educator, Laura is committed to offering support and ideas where our culture often falters. Debunking myths about the grieving process can often allow a better understanding and acceptance of our own journeys. Understanding the reality of how grief impacts our lives is important knowledge in creating long-term meaningful relationships with ourselves and others we love.
After Laura's bout with Stage III cancer, she changed her life and became a seasoned Certified Senior Advisor (Specialist in Aging), A Certified Grief Educator, and a Certified End of Life Doula. She is a volunteer with Hospice of the Piedmont and is passionate about changing the narrative to normalize conversations on grief and dying.
This event will take place in the cemetery proper. Please dress for the weather and prepare for uneven terrain and rudimentary seating. Bring water!
