Deepen your understanding of the transformative potential inherent in the grieving process. In this experiential and interactive class, we examine current research, share personal stories and explore myths and models of grief and obstacles to grief. You also learn how your strengths can assist you in the act of grieving and how to support others going through loss. By reviewing some of your own grief experiences--large or small—and applying what you’ve learned, you create the possibility of bringing about deeper reconciliation and integration. (Note: This class is not grief therapy and is not recommended for those going through a new or recent loss. Unsure if this class is for you? Contact instructor.)
