South San Francisco, California (PRWEB) June 09, 2014
Pathways Home Health, Hospice & Private Duty will offer two separate workshops on Writing & Grief this summer in their South San Francisco offices.
Led by bereavement counselor Dave Rutschman, these one and half hour workshops will encourage individuals who are grieving to explore their emotions and sadness through the power of writing. Attendees will read poems and short prose reflections by grievers, and write pieces of their own about our particular grief journey. No sharing will be required.
The first Writing & Grief workshop is scheduled for Friday, June 27, 2014, noon – 1:30 p.m.
The second Writing & Grief workshop will be held on Friday, July 25, 2014, noon – 1:30 p.m.
Both of these workshops are free of charge, non-denominational and open to the general public. Advanced registration is required to 1 (888) 905-2800, ext. 4241, bereavement(at)pathwayshealth(dot)org.
