Have you recently experienced grief due to death or the loss of an important relationship? Do you wonder what it means to face your own death, or the death of those you love?
If so, all are welcome to join author, birth/death doula, and hospital chaplain, Amy Wright Glenn for a transformative and inspiring 5-hour workshop addressing the key topics of what it means to love, die, and let go.
*Early bird for regular registration is $145 by July 5th. Doulas who have trained with Nicole Heidbreder, members of the Institute for the Study of Birth, Breath, and Death , members of the National Home Funeral Alliance, and members of INELDA pay $100. Scholarships also available.
The Loving, Dying, and Letting Go workshop focuses on key themes present in Amy’s second book Holding Space: On Loving, Dying, and Letting Go published by Parallax Press. (Read an excerpt). All enrolled in Loving, Dying, and Letting Go receive a PDF syllabus and a pre-workshop email reading assignment. Writing, personal reflection, and small group work are central to the format of the workshop.
All participants are requested to read Holding Space by Amy Wright Glenn as her book serves as the core of the workshop’s curriculum covering what it means to hold space for self/others, best care practices for supporting bereaved families in pregnancy/infant loss, and an exploration of the link between the work of those called to be doulas for birth and death.
