Self Compassion and Art Therapy in Grief

February 6, 2018

You’re invited to three evenings of Art-Making for Individuals who are Grieving. (You can attend one, two, or all the sessions.)  Grieving the loss of a loved one can leave us feeling as though our lives have been turned upside down.  We may experience a roller coaster of emotions and feel adrift, as we work to accept the reality of the loss.

To register, contact Alexandra Horsky at 905-712-8119 x 247

Join the Movement! Together, Let's Launch and Build a Compassionate Community

February 23, 2018

Friday, February 23, 2018
1 PM – 3 PM
Burnhamthorpe Community Centre
Fleetwood Village Room
1500 Gulleden Dr., Mississauga

It is time to RETHINK how we do things:  How we look after, and connect with, each other today and every day because building a community that cares for each other makes us happier, keeps us healthy and makes us live longer.  Loneliness and isolation are toxic especially if you are living with a serious illness, caring for someone or grieving for someone.

Dying
     is not fundamentally a medical event, it
is a social event
     that happens in the family and community.
