Losing a child has been described as an unimagined grief that connects with the deepest emotions of the heart and changes your life forever. The Bob & Merle Scolnik Healing Center of Harbor Hospice is offering a one-day retreat for women whose child(ren) have died.
On Saturday, October 24, 2020 from 9 am to 4 pm, “Heartstrings” will provide an opportunity for mothers, grandmothers, aunts and other women who have lost a child to connect with each other and learn more about how to manage this unique grief. Large group and breakout sessions will focus on learning more about the challenges of child loss, how to effectively manage guilt and regret, and ways to maneuver the changes brought about from the death of a child.
Registration is $20 per person and must be received no later than October 7, 2020. Each participant is asked to bring a printed photo of their child which will be returned to them at the end of the day. Lunch and all materials are included.
Heartstrings will be held at Harbor Hospice, 1050 W. Western Ave., Suite 400, Muskegon, MI 49441. Call 231.728.3442 or 1.800.497.9559 for more information.
