Grief and Loss Workshops

Constructing a New Reality After Death:
This engaging workshop will explore “the broken places “of our grief and offers tools and strategies that can help us construct a new, different and meaningful world without the physical presence of our loved ones and/or fellow fallen armed forces service members. There will also be time reserved for questions and answers.

Men and Grief:
This presentation will focus on the challenges that returning male veterans face after the death of a fellow service member in the line of duty, or of a loved one back home.  Our unique process of grieving will be explored.  Other areas such as expression of thoughts and feelings, accessing and receiving support, and our language of grief will also be discussed. Time will also be reserved for questions and answers.

Women and Grief:
This presentation will focus on the challenges that returning female veterans face after the death of a fellow service member in the line of duty, or of a loved one back home.  Specific areas to be explored: spirituality, coping skills and personal rituals that help promote adjustment after loss.

Nature, Animals and Grief:
Explore the healing power of nature and animals as it relates to helping participants navigate their grief following the death of their loved ones and/or fellow fallen armed forces service members.  By workshop’s end, this interactive workshop will enable participants to see how their own personal “vocabulary of nature” can be the catalyst for transforming perspectives on life and death. Time will also be reserved for questions and answers.

Journey of Self-Discovery: Empowerment Through Grief:
In this interactive workshop, the presenters will share their experience of empowerment in being able to transform the tragedy of loss into a meaningful and purposeful life.  Among the topics to be discussed: how to walk in awareness to develop clarity during our journeys, how the pain of grief looked in the early vs. later phases of our journeys, and other tools that can facilitate self-discovery in the midst of the challenges presented by the death and other life altering events.
