Holidays! It takes a lot of effort to be cheerful when we are feeling sad, and the presence of grief roars or whispers. How will we manage our emotions? The compassionate circle is for anyone who is anxious or worried about how to move through the holiday season when feelings of loss are present.

In our circle we will:

  • Honor old traditions and explore what is meaningful now

  • Give ourselves permission to experiment with approaching the holidays differently

  • Discover quick and effective tools to release emotion to prevent feeling overwhelmed

Grieving is hard and the holidays can sometimes feel less of a celebration and more of an emotional maneuver. In our time together, we will learn some potent methods to be present in our grief, including permission to walk away when we need to. We welcome you into the supportive sanctuary of the compassionate circle.
