We all live with loss and it’s not just about death. Loss comes in many forms. For example, for some it’s the loss of independence, mobility, or a relationship. For others, it could be the loss of identity from leaving a job, being an empty nester, or simply missing what use to be. Please join us for a FREE wellness workshop and learn how to navigate through loss. After all, what do you have to lose?


We filmed the workshops and they will be on our site by December 2020.  Check back again to see when they are up on our site.  They will be a timeless resource to help you navigate loss.
