Some Bonds Cannot Be Broken – WhatsYourGrief – with the HeartLight Center


Fostering Continued Connections with Loved Ones Who Have Died A virtual program for anyone who has experienced a loss or is supporting a grieving loved one through loss. ********* Creating ongoing and continued connections with loved ones who have died is a normal and natural part of grief. These connections, known as continued bonds, can bring great comfort as you learn to move forward in the world without your loved one – holding onto items, daily habits, private rituals, conversations with your loved one, visiting places where you feel close to them, thinking about them – these are all ways people stay connected to those who have died. Unfortunately, certain deaths pose uniquely difficult challenges to coping with grief and creating continuing bonds. Sudden losses, deaths that are stigmatized, and deaths that have occurred during COVID-19 are just a handful of these potentially traumatic losses. Adapting in these circumstances can be particularly difficult, leaving some people with especially intense, pervasive, overwhelming grief. ********* In this session, participants will learn more about the impact of these potentially traumatic losses on grief, consider common barriers to coping and adapting and how to address them, reflect on the role continuing bonds plays in grief and grief healing, and be introduced to creative and practical tools for fostering a continued bond with loved ones who have died. ********* Tuesday May 10th, 2022 ***** 5:00 Pacific / 6:00 Mountain / 7:00 Central / 8:00 Eastern (1.5 Hour Program) ***** Suggested donation: $15
