October Grief Workshop
Understanding Loss: Growing Through Grief
Join us Saturday October 14th from 9 to noon for our fall grief workshop. Your paid ticket will include a light breakfast and lunch.
Our speakers will be Vickie Mears and Julianna Sellers. Learn more about them below. We are excited to host this event. Seating is limited so reserve your seat now.
Understanding Loss: Growing Through Grief Grief is the normal reaction after a loss of any kind: death, divorce, illness, and many more. In part one of this workshop we will look at the myths of loss and grief and discuss ways to help ourselves, or someone else, going through this difficult experience; especially as the holidays are near. Grief can also strip away all of the things that don’t truly matter and shake up everything we thought we knew. It is a powerful place to let go of anything that hasn’t worked for us in the past and to choose what we want to create going forward. Find out how to find resilience and growth as we move forward and create a new normal.
Vickie holds a master’s degree in social work from KU and serves in
Grief Support Services at Crossroads Hospice. In this capacity, she walks
alongside those who are grieving the death of a loved-one for the first year
after the loss. Her philosophy aligns with the strengths perspective focusing
on a person’s potential for adaptation, renewal, and growth. She believes the
heart is designed to heal.
Julianna is the founder of Grow Thru Grief and the author of the upcoming book, Choose Life: From Grieving to Believing. She was widowed just over 6 years ago, and that started her journey of choosing to live life as fully as possible. She specializes in helping people who have experienced a significant loss learn how to feel fully again, how to dream again, and how to choose to lean into life. She is trained as a life coach through Enwaken, Pure Coaching, and Tapping into Wealth Coaching and is a Family Life Educator with a Bachelor’s degree in Marriage and Family Studies from BYU-Idaho. She believes that grief can be used as a sacred space to let go of things that don’t really matter, examine the pieces that are left, and build a new normal moving forward.
