Where: Mercy Oaks, 2225 College View Drive, Redding, CA
Cost: Free and open to the public
All of us are touched at some time in life by death. Navigating the course through grief and learning to live again without our beloved other can be daunting and overwhelming. The journey of healing leads us into the dark hallways of denial, bargaining, anger, depression and finally to acceptance, where we learn to come to terms with life without our sacred other, whether it be a parent, sibling, spouse or friend.
“Grief: The Journey of Healing” is an evening of remembering our beloved other, reflecting upon the life shared and the journey of healing while allowing ourselves the space and support to express our grief and loss through contemplation, reflection, music, silence and ritual.
Mercy Hospice and Lynn E. Fritz, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, are collaborating to offer this evening for all those grieving the loss of a loved one. Join Lynn Fritz and co-presenters Emily Sawyer, Mercy Hospice Supervisor of Volunteer and Bereavement Programs, and Sue MillerBorn, Registered Nurse and Certified Yoga Instructor, on Wednesday, September 15 from 7-8:30 PM. The evening will be in the beautiful outdoor setting of Mercy Oaks, 2225 College View Drive, Redding, with Native American flute music provided by Joey Carroll. Co-sponsored by the Center for Spiritual Living, Shasta Estates, National Association of Social Workers-Northern Gateway Unit, and Shasta County Interfaith Forum.
Those in attendance are invited to bring a picture of their loved one(s) or a symbol representing the individual(s), and the loss they have experienced. The evening is free, open to the public of all ages and no advanced reservations are required. For more information, please call Lynn Fritz at 243-8862 or Mercy Hospice at 245-4070.
