Workshop: Pet Grief and the Holidays
December 14, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$40
Throughout the years I have worked with people and their animals, I have discovered that the area where folks most often need support and are most reticent to ask is when they are grieving the loss of a beloved pet. In the hustle, bustle, traditional joy and excitement of the holidays, the topic of pet grief is considered a downer and therefore avoided. After all, who wants to be talking about a downer subject amidst all the festivities? The person who is experiencing pet grief, that’s who. If you’ve ever grieved for one of your animal pals during the holidays, regardless of how recent or how far in the past, this workshop is for you.
I encourage you to join me in this online workshop “Grieving Your Pet Over the Holidays”. In the workshops you’ll learn ways to help you authentically cope with your grief while reconciling the holiday spirit, how to cope with holiday traditions and ways you can memorialize your pet. You will have a chance at the end of the workshops to ask questions and share your stories.
This workshop touches on a highly sensitive, personal and complicated topic. It is not meant to be a counseling session and should not be taken as such. There is no easy ‘fix’ or ‘cure’, but there are ways you can honor your grief during the holiday season. There will be time during the workshop to share your story, if you so desire. The intent of this workshop is to offer a safe place where you receive ideas on how to reconcile your grief and the holiday spirit. Check your time zone here.
