GRIEF IS A JOURNEY AND A PROCESS,
NOT SOMETHING “WE GET OVER”
The First Presbyterian Church of Cranford, 11 Springfield Ave., will hold their eight-week seminar – “Journey to Wholeness- Healing the Grieving Heart” on Sundays evenings from April 23, 2017-June 11, 2017.
Patti Williams, R.N., and certified pastoral bereavement counselor, and Virginia Waters, PhD. Psychologist, will lead the sessions from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Thompson Youth Center of the church. Patti and Virginia have offered this seminar for 17 years now, and have helped about 2500 people experience healing, find a new purpose for their lives, and feel joy once again. This is an experience like no other.
The sessions include learning about the stages of grief and understanding the tasks of the grieving process, coping strategies, deal with lonliness, building a support system, etc.
Both of the leaders and all of the facilitators have experienced loss within their lives and share from “the inside out”. It does not matter if your loss is divorce, death or job loss; loss is loss- it must be grieved. It does not matter how long ago you experienced loss. Bring family members and friends. All faiths are welcome. Teen group available. To register for this life changing event, please call 908-709-1341. No fee is charged.
The seminar is dedicated to Patti’s late husband, the Rev. Dr. Bruce D. Williams who had a vision for this program wanting to help others deal with their pain and suffering during their time of loss.
