The Grief Recovery Method

Pathfinders presents The Grief Recovery Method, an action program for moving beyond loss. The Grief Recovery Method is: a directed and supported process with each “action” building upon the last; for all losses including death, divorce, pet loss, financial loss, loss of safety, etc.; and a powerful method that has helped people for over 20 years step back into life after loss. In a very safe environment, we will look at old beliefs about dealing with loss, the losses that have affected your life, then take new actions that lead to completion of the pain attached to one of those losses. This weekend intensive workshop will be June 4 and 5 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Pitkin County Senior Center, 275 Castle Creek Road in Aspen. The cost is $165 for both days. Financial assistance is absolutely available. Registration is important as space is limited. Call Jennifer at 970-456-7026 for more information and to register.
