Dear Clients, Friends and Colleagues, The death of an animal loved one, for some of us, is one of the most painful experiences of our lives. As holidays, anniversaries or other special milestones approach they can trigger fears and concerns about how challenging it may be to experience these special days without our loved ones--even if our loss occurred a long time ago. If you or someone you know is feeling anxiety, worries or dread about how hard upcoming holidays or anniversaries might be, the content, resources and guided meditation offered in this class bring both practical and emotional support. I am honored that author and therapist Judy Tatelbaum agreed to facilitate this class. I have known and respected Judy for many years: she has written a best selling book on healing grief that has inspired me, is a huge animal lover, knows the deep pain of losing a beloved animal from her own experiences, and supports others grieving from pet loss in her practice (scroll down for bio). With love and blessings to you and all of your animal loved ones, Teresa For many of us the grief from the loss of loved ones is felt acutely at times of celebration. Holidays, birthdays and anniversaries are times when we are expected to be happy, but for those who are grieving it can be challenging to put on a happy face. This is especially true if those around us don't understand the depth of our love for animals and the animal we have lost. This class provides strategies to make these occasions somewhat easier. The class will help you not only survive but to also find solace and meaning during these special seasons and days. You will receive practical help, hope, loving comfort and the knowledge that you are in the company of others who also share your experiences. The handouts include detailed lists and descriptions of ritual and memorial ideas and links to many resources and also includes exercises: * A guided meditation you can listen to again and again to fill you with courage and love to not only survive these special seasons and days but to find meaning and connection with the spirit of your animal loved one. * Identify and seek supportive people, animals, places and ideas to help you through the challenges of these times * Plan meaningful rituals and special ways to memorialize and honor your animal during holidays and anniversaries Issues that are addressed in the teleclass: The Three C's: Choose, Communicate and Compromise Be Kind to Yourself Express Your Feelings Create Support for Yourself Ask for What You Need Appreciate Your Other Loved Ones Help Another Person in Need Don't Compare Your Life with Anyone Else's Making the Best of Tough Circumstances Modify Your Expectations How Not To Be A Victim of Your Pain Resolving How or Where to Spend the Holidays or Anniversaries Including Your Beloved Animal Who Has Died in Holiday Plans Avoiding the Holidays Doing Something New and Different Meditation for Solace and Connection Register Here Class Instructor Judy Tatelbaum Judy Tatelbaum, M.S.W., Licensed Clinical Social Worker, psychotherapist, inspirational speaker, popular keynote speaker, workshop leader, and professional trainer.
