Throughout the years I have worked with people and their animals, I have discovered that the area where folks most often need support and are most reticent to ask is when they are grieving the loss of a beloved pet. In the hustle, bustle, traditional joy and excitement of the holidays, the topic of pet grief is considered a downer and therefore avoided. After all, who wants to be talking about a downer subject amidst all the festivities? The person who is experiencing pet grief, that's who. If you've ever grieved for one of your animal pals during the holidays, regardless of how recent or how far in the past, this workshop is for you. I encourage you to join me in this online workshop "Grieving Your Pet Over the Holidays". In the workshops you'll learn ways to help you authentically cope with your grief while reconciling the holiday spirit, how to cope with holiday traditions and ways you can memorialize your pet. You will have a chance at the end of the workshops to ask questions and share your stories. This workshop touches on a highly sensitive, personal and complicated topic. It is not meant to be a counseling session and should not be taken as such. There is no easy fix or cure, but there are ways you can honor your grief during the holiday season. There will be time during the workshop to share your story, if you so desire. The intent of this workshop is to offer a safe place where you receive ideas on how to reconcile your grief and the holiday spirit. My hope for you is this workshop will bring you both some relief from grief and added peace this holiday season.

Those of us who love animals and have chosen to have them as family members have most probably experienced their passing at some point, or we will be in the future. This brings up all kinds of uncomfortable feelings for us - feelings we want to avoid, decisions we can feel inadequate and unprepared to make. Pet grief can be difficult to handle, simply because we want our beloved animal pals to be with us forever and ever. And as we are aware at some level, that is not possible. But how do we cope with the grief when we are left behind? Join me in this workshop entitled Where Grief and Love Meet where I share the story of my beloved horse Shiloh's passing and the tools I used to help me integrate both grief and love during that shocking time. What you will hear: *Shiloh's story *What grief is *How the norms of our society and culture block authentic grief *Tools you can use to help you integrate both your grief and love *When you are unable to handle your grief yourself and it is time to reach out for a professional This workshop touches on a highly sensitive, personal and complicated topic. It is not meant to be a counseling session and should not be taken as such.There is no easy fix or cure, but there are ways you can care for yourself as you are experiencing grief. There will be time during the workshop to share your story, if you so desire. The intent of this workshop is to offer a safe place where you receive ideas on how to cope with your grief and how to kindly support yourself during your grief.
THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE RECORDED. If you grew up in a household - as so many of us did - where hard work, sacrifice and doing for others was not only expected but highly praised, you probably find yourself thinking you must do the same thing when you are connecting with the animals. However, when that adage is taken too far, it becomes counterproductive and even detrimental. We can find ourselves physically and mentally fatigued, leading to emotions such as overwhelm and anger. This is especially true when using our intuition with the animals. Join me in this online workshop where I'll be talking about the importance of setting healthy boundaries and self care when connecting with the animals. I�ll also share some self care practices that have worked well for me throughout the years. This workshop is a highly interactive experience, a dynamic mixture of lecture, Q&A, participant chat, and making connections with like-minded folks throughout the call. You will leave the workshop having a better understanding of why self care is essential and not a luxury for �when I have the time� as well as some practices you can use yourself.
