In 2014, National Grief Awareness Day was founded on August 30th by Angie Cartwright. She became dedicated to educating others to the realities of bereavement and bringing support to those who grieve after she became familiar with loss herself. In the spirit of continuing the work of Ms. Cartwright, Chaplaincy Grief Care is hosting “Good Grief: Grief Relief in the Park” on August 12.
Please join us on Sunday, August 12 at 11:00 a.m. for an outdoor celebration of the many ways that we express our grief while surrounded by the beautiful Southeastern Washington environment. This event is free to the public and appropriate for all ages. If you are coping with the loss of a loved one, a job, relationship, or other type of loss, this event is for you. There will be activities tailored to explore some less thought of ways to express grief. These activities include a movement activity, free-writing exercise, and a memory craft. Chaplaincy Grief Care staff will be on hand to discuss the day’s activities as we recognize these activities may draw out feelings that have been tucked away. Healing from a loss takes time and closure can come in many forms. We invite you to open and explore new ways to process the difficult feelings associated with loss of any kind, and look forward to seeing you on August 12!
