Learn how to cope with grief at the LOACC
At the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center we recognize that death is complicated for the living. Sure, there are the details of organizing the funeral, and clearing out the house, but there are also emotions to be dealt with.
Every death brings emotions, feelings and grief. Even the loss of a prominent figures you've never met can stir up a multitude of emotions of childhood, parents, friends and the lost dream of becoming a rock star yourself.
A loss can put you into a spiral of grief that feels never-ending.
As part of our Living Well talk series the ACC has invited grief specialist Georgena Eggleston to present at the center at 6 p.m. Sept. 10. Georgena acknowledges we often feel at a loss when trying to heal our past hurts or when dealing with our unresolved grief. Receive permission, assurance, practical guidance to discover where emotional pain lives in your body, and how to release it and replace the thoughts that keep you stuck. Georgena has experienced her share of heartache and is dedicated to help others with grief. And grief is not just about death, but any loss such as divorce, joblessness and illness. Get the tools from Georgena to begin healing the hurt. There is a $5 fee. Register today.
