ONLINE - Recognition and Resilience: Grief and the Loss of Traditions During the Pandemic

*Online
Tuesday, Jun 29, 6:30pm to 8:00pm

It is important to recognize the absence or interruption of traditional customs and rituals, both celebratory and grief-oriented, during the pandemic. If you have experienced loss over the past year, including:

  • Cancelled in-person holiday gatherings with friends & families
  • Remote schooling & not being able to walk at graduation
  • Closure of your business
  • Separation from your spouse
  • Selling your dairy herd and/or farm
  • Loss of a loved one during the pandemic -- whether due to Covid-19 or not

please join Outreach Workers from Project Recovery for a presentation on grief recognition & resilience, with discussion to follow. This discussion is intended to acknowledge what was lost, to embrace closure, and to reclaim and re-imagine the rites and ritual that help us make sense of our lives.

This event will be hosted virtually through Zoom. The link to this program will be sent to you by email when you sign up. Zoom is a free video platform, and you can watch on a browser, or through the free mobile app for ios or android. You can also call in with a phone to attend with audio only.

Registration is limited to 30 participants.
