Strengthening Your Container with Karla Helbert, LPC - The death of your child or sibling is traumatic and one of the most difficult experiences imaginable. It's traumatic grief. There's no "getting over it." We can however learn how to hold and how to carry it through life while remaining connected with our Children and with our own hearts. Even in grief, we are already whole. Yoga can help us re-remember this truth. Join Karla, author, licensed therapist, yoga instructor, and bereaved mother for this day of emotional, devotional, creative and restorative aspects of yoga that can help us move through our grief. $25.00 for all day yoga session, price includes lunch. Please bring a photo or other memorial item for your child or sibling and also a yoga mat and/or a blanket to use for the workshop.Find out more »
