This workshop is now over. Thank you for your interest!

This free 3-hour workshop is open to anyone interested in connecting, sharing and learning with others, about ways to find meaning and healing after loss through life story work.

During the workshop, we will discuss ways to celebrate, memorialize, and feel connected to those we love. You will also gain new and creative tools and project ideas for preserving your cherished stories and memories.

With the holidays just around the corner, this could also be a great inspiration for you to come up with some special personalized gifts that come straight from the heart.
