Healthy Remembrance Memorial Ornament Grief Art Workshop
The holidays are upon us and it is extra important to take intentional time to care for yourself and to remember
and honor the love ones you've lost. Grief always seems to tougher around the holidays, but the chaos and isolation of 2020 is unlike anything we've ever faced. That's why Danica Thurber at Project Grief put together
this Healthy Remembrance Memorial Ornament grief art workshop.
In this workshop you'll learn how to make a beautiful ornament that contains hand-written memories.
The trouble is that the holidays are here, but our lost loved ones not. It can be tempting to either push thoughts
of a lost loved one away, OR sink into the depths of despair. That’s why doing something productive -
making something with your hands! - can be so helpful.
This ornament is made out of a toilet paper roll. Before making the snowflake, you’ll have time to reflect
and write a memory or a letter to your lost loved one.
Watch it and participate for FREE. Here is the link: https://youtu.be/Wzg8oEJQIkQ

Navigating the Holidays While Grieving: A Workshop For Grievers & Those Who Love Them
Sunday, December 13, 2020 at 3:00 PM EST
This time of year finds a lot of us grieving those we love. Mourning for those who used to be a integral part of
our holiday traditions. And now with the pandemic, many of us are grieving and mourning the fact that this is
NOT going to be like any holiday season we've ever experienced. These times are complicated and so are
our feelings and emotions. That's why Sherrie Dunlevy, of Graduating Grief, is offering something that can
help us all get through this together. Won't you join in for this special zoom?
There is NO CHARGE but you do NEED TO REGISTER as seats are limited. If you know someone
really having a difficult time, invite them and then attend with them. Sometimes its nice to not
feel so alone and to know there are others feeling the same way too.
