Loss, disappointment and unwanted change often make us feel numb, confused and disoriented.  Learn to develop a new perspective, a deeper experience of life and love and an expanded sense of happiness. If you are grieving for a loved one or a lost relationship, experiencing unwanted change or caring for a sick friend or relative, seize this opportunity to reconnect with the love, peace and joy that lie within you. Please note: Participants are encouraged to read Awakening From Grief by John E. Welshons (published by New World Library) prior to attending class. This is not a requirement, but is strongly suggested in order to gain the maximum benefit from the class."
