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
