Grief and Loss during the Pandemic
Join us for a look at the impact the pandemic is having by not giving us a safe space to grieve all the losses we have experienced. Grief and loss is an individual journey and no two are the same. Have you heard things like "When are you going to get over this?" or "It will all be ok." These words often don't provide the comfort we need.
This is a healing session to share and embrace loss and grief. Loss of loved ones, jobs, stability, predictability or social outlets. There will be time for questions and answers as well.
Ages 14 and older are welcome.
When: Date to be determined
Where: Reiman Healing Chapel
Cost: goodwill donation appreciated
Pre-registration is required! Email Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org your name, mobile number and number attending. Capacity is 25.

Are you longing for peace……peace of mind and body, peace in your heart and soul, peace for your neighbor and peace for the world?
If so, you are invited to join me for A Year of Peace.
In our world today, finding peace takes effort. We can be so busy and absorbed in just living day to day we sometimes forget our own needs of Self-care. When this happens, stress, tension and anxiety can build up in our bodies and minds, leading to irritability, anger, frustration. But what if we slowed down the pace of life, took time for our Self to move and breath with simple awareness and peacefulness? How would it feel to bring greater peace with-in so that we can experience greater peace with-out? When we create peace in our own bodies and mind, the world around us becomes more peaceful.
With like-minded people, in a small, intimate setting, we will be exploring peace through mindful yoga movements, guided meditation and relaxation, sound healing through singing bowls and tuned pipes, journaling, and more in the beautiful, natural surroundings of the Healing Chapel in the Woods at the Conservancy in Franklin.
