Friends Meeting of Washington (Washington, DC)

Grief is the heart’s natural response to the loss of something important, whether it’s the death of a loved one or pet, the break-up of a relationship, loss of health, job loss, or a myriad of other losses. The grief process, while healthy and natural, often creates a constellation of emotions and reactions that are hard to handle, and it can be a time of isolation and confusion. This workshop is designed to help anyone who is going through a significant loss navigate through the process and learn about the nature of grief and the journey to healing. In this safe, supportive environment, participants will develop a deeper understanding of their experience, and find comfort in knowing they are not alone in their suffering. The workshop will begin at 1:00pm and end at 4:00. Admission is $25 and you can register by contacting the FMW office.
