Grief- Your Personal Journey With Loss, The Healing Grounds
Kathy Stang, founder of The Healing Grounds, will conduct an 8-week life group entitled, “Grief – Your Personal Journey with Loss” where she will explore the 6 Central Needs of Mourning, based on Dr. Alan D. Wolfelt’s teachings, “Meeting the six needs of mourning one day at a time will help you move toward a life of meaning and purpose again.” Dr. Wolfelt has over 4 decades of grief care and has authored more than 70 books. The six needs:
- Acknowledge the reality of the death
- Embrace the pain of the loss
- Remember the person who died
- Develop a new self-identity
- Search for meaning
- Receive ongoing support from others
The Healing Grounds mission is to offer confidential, caring support, from peer Certified Grief Care Providers, for all difficult walks in life. Grief does not just impact lives when there is a death. Grief that needs to be mourned and not carried comes in all forms from death to suicide, child loss, adoption, divorce, health diagnosis, terminal illness, life transition, job loss, loss of a dream, empty nest, lost faith, traumatic loss or incident and so much more. You need not walk alone through these complications life can throw at you. Let us walk with you.
Join Kathy at the Waters Church in Sartell from 6:00 to 7:30 every Tuesday from September 18th through November 6th. Text or call 320-493-8472 to register.
