Lunch & Learn – Exploring Loss, Grief and Sorrow

In partnership with Origin at Spring Creek

Facilitator: Bill Harder – PCSBV’s Palliative & Grief Support Navigator

Date: Saturday June 10, 2023
Time: 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Location: 808 Spring Creek Drive, Canmore, Alberta
Lunch at Mineshaft Tavern &  Learn in Origin’s Screening Room

Limited Space so RSVP today by emailing leasing@originspringcreek.ca

In this presentation we will explore loss, grief, and sorrow as fundamental experiences of transformation, deepening, and growth. We will look at ways of providing support to those who grieve – co-workers, clients, family, and friends. Our conversation will look at expressions of grief, cultural myths around grief, and some metaphors and stories to help us in building an understanding of grief’s transformational power in our lives.

From the facilitator: 

“I have learned much about living from my work with those who are dying and from those who sorrow. It is in this soil
that I have deepened my own roots and grown as a person. In discovering the transformative power of grief, I have
come to understand loss as a quintessential experience that every human being will come to know. In hospice end-of-life care we journey with the dying and grieving as co-mentors, explorers of beginnings and endings. Our work is about dying well and bearing witness to the sorrow of those who grieve.”
