Growing through Grief workshop offered to those who have faced loss

Growing through Grief is a workshop designed to benefit those who have faced some type of loss or grief in the past five years. This may include, for example, the loss of a loved one or friend, a disability, poor health diagnosis, infertility, the shattering of a lifelong dream, a suicide, someone we love who betrays us or discovery of a moral failure.

The workshop, scheduled for 9 to 11 a.m. on June 15, will be led by Pastor Mike Griffin and licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Karen Tyner. Both have worked with grief groups and have had their own experiences of loss that inform their understanding of the grief process and some of the resources that can help people grow through it.

The workshop will explore the place that the Psalms can play in a healthy grieving process as they encourage us to stay in communication with God. The workshop will also explore the Universal Time Approach to grieving and provide other written and caring resources that can encourage your growth through grief.

Grief is a journey with many destinations. It can lead to disillusionment and despair or we can come to a place of acceptance and growth. Staying in communication with God in the midst of the confusion and disorientation of grief can help people to heal and grow through it. Also, understanding some of the barriers and faulty paradigms, as well as what healthy grieving may look like, can encourage the healing process. The workshop will be held at the Sierra Presbyterian Church, 175 Ridge Road in Nevada City. RSVP by contacting the church office at 530-265-3291.
