Comfort for Those Who Mourn
1784 Lacrosse Ave.
Grief has been described as a wound that takes a very long time to heal. For some the wound seems never to heal. It is only by accepting the reality of the loss, experiencing the pain of grief and adjusting to a new environment that healing is possible. No one can take away the pain and sadness a person feels after the death of a loved one. While no two people grieve the same way, sharing with others who have also experienced a loss often brings comfort and peace.
Allow us to share your difficult journey. Find comfort and peace at The Well. Through prayer, music, and sharing your story, we will explore the milestones of grieving and how to move forward in a life where a loved one is no longer physically present. The old normal may be gone forever but the new normal has the potential of offering peace and happiness. Your loved one would want you to be happy again.
This program is offered as a series of six classes. We ask that you plan to attend all six classes in order to reap the greatest benefits. Cost: Free will donation.
