Nature-Based Grief Ritual Workshop for Families
September 24, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pmFree
On Saturday, Sept. 24, Tufts Medicine Care at Home will offer the opportunity to create a grief ritual in nature on the grounds of High Pointe House, the hospice and palliative care residence located at 360 North Ave. in Haverhill.
The event is free and open to individuals and families with children ages 5 and older, and will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with light snacks included.
Please pre-register by calling Susan Toleos at 978-552-4510 by September 19th.
At the event, Tufts Medicine Care at Home bereavement counselors Kara Cheek and Whitney Hall will educate attendees about the importance and benefits of performing rituals. Participants will then visit three stations along a peaceful wooded path and use the four elements of nature – earth, water, air, and fire (an electric candle) – to honor their loved one, let go of a burdensome emotion or regret, and transform the loss so as not to become stuck in the grieving process.
