     “Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.”  Matthew 5:4 KJV

    Are you suffering from unresolved grief due to major life losses that were something other than the death of a loved one? [For example, loss of childhood,  innocence, self-image, hope, a major career; loss of limbs or functions; estrangements, etc.]  We often choose to ignore many of these losses, and we can get stuck.  There are many books and programs that focus on recovering from “loss through death.”  But, loss of relationship is only one of twelve major types of losses. What does the process look like when you deliberately choose to mourn any of the other losses?  Join us for this in-depth study and process of how to mourn our losses and resolve our griefs and sorrows. This class is for women only at this time but please contact Pat Farnand if you are a male interested in a future class. Registration will be open soon for this class. Questions? Contact
