Everyone has experienced the loss of a loved one on some level. When my father was killed in a car accident in 1974, there was no such thing as grief counseling. Death was an aspect of life that was to be swept under the rug, and there was no format to process or cope with a loss. Grief has no timeline; the process is as unique as the individuals experiencing it. Unresolved issues, guilt, depression and anger are all normal responses to the loss of a loved one.
I am proud to announce that Common Boundary Wellness Center is providing me the space to conduct a bereavement workshop, beginning Wednesday, Nov. 10, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. This will be an eight-week workshop on the process of grief and conquering the challenges of rebuilding ones life without his or her loved one. As a spiritual adviser for more than 20 years, I am looking forward to donating my time and energy to help those who are having a difficult time with the loss of a loved one.
Please contact me, Denise Guzzardo, at 815/547-7535. Seating is limited, but there are still spots available. Admission is free.
