REGISTRATION OPENS AUGUST 1 FOR UNIQUE BEREAVEMENT SEMINAR HEALING ALL TYPES OF LOSS @  First Presbyterian Church of Cranford 
Aug 29 all-day
REGISTRATION OPENS AUGUST 1 FOR UNIQUE BEREAVEMENT SEMINAR HEALING ALL TYPES OF LOSS @  First Presbyterian Church of Cranford  | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

The First Presbyterian Church of Cranford (FPCC), 11 Springfield Ave., Cranford, will hold its eight-week seminar, “Journey to Wholeness – Healing the Grieving Heart”, on Sunday evenings from Sept 15 to Nov 3, 2019. Topics of discussion will include loss in all of its different forms, and how one can cope and continue forward past their pain and suffering. Pre-registration opens on Aug 1 and is required prior to the first session.

Patti Williams, R.N. and Certified Pastoral Bereavement Counselor, and Virginia Waters, PhD. Psychologist, have been hosting this program for 19 years at FPCC, and have helped almost 3,000 people experience healing, find new purpose for their lives and feel joy once again.

Sessions will run from 6:30 – 8:30 PM in the Prime Time Room of the church. Note, this location is handicapped accessible. Teaching is interactive and the small groups are paired with a facilitator who has faced the same loss.

Per Williams, “This is an experience like no other. It does not matter if your loss is divorce, death, depression, loss of health or job loss; loss is loss – it must be grieved. It does not matter how long ago you experienced loss.”

The sessions include learning about the stages of grief and understanding the tasks of the grieving process, coping strategies and tools for the journey, taking good care of ourselves, dealing with changes, decisions, loneliness, holidays, anniversaries, building a support system and more.

Both of the leaders and all of the facilitators have experienced loss within their lives and share from “the inside out”. Bring family members and friends.  All faiths are welcome. You must pre-register for this life-changing event and attend the first session. Registration closes Sept 14. Call Williams to register at 908-709-1341. No fee is charged.

In the words of a recent participant, name removed for privacy purposes, “I have learned more along this heartbreaking journey than I ever thought possible. I have learned that you will never ever forget your love and that you are changed forever, but you need to give yourself permission to heal… I believe that your loved one only wants the best for you and you will be reunited one day.”

The seminar is dedicated to Patti’s late husband, the Rev. Dr. Bruce D. Williams who had a vision for this program and a desire to help others deal with their pain and suffering during their time of loss.
