Talking About Loss | Treading Above Water
This program is offered virtually and open to anyone who has been impacted by cancer. Membership is not required to participate.
Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto invites you to join us for our new education series, Treading Above Water. Each week throughout the month of April we will provide virtual educational opportunities to learn from subject matter experts about the difficult topic of dying and death.
Treading Above Water is an opportunity to learn how to process difficult information and plan the best options for you or your loved ones during a period of time when life’s waters are calm, so that you will be able to keep your head above water when life becomes more turbulent and the water gets deep.
In this presentation, we will learn about exactly what grief is (and isn’t!) and how it shows up in our lives. We will explore ways to learn to identify and carry our own grief, and how to show up for the people we love who are grieving.
