Coping With Grief Find Your Path To Peace Explored at Lifetree Café

In light of the recent tragic loss of our Granite Mountain Hotshots, the program this week will be held in Agape Hall (main sanctuary) as we are expecting a higher number of participants. We invite all who are mourning the loss of a friend or loved one as well as those who want to offer love and hope to those mourning to attend this program.

Ways to cope with grief and find peace after loss will be discussed at Lifetree Café. The program, titled "Coping with Grief: Find Your Path to Peace," features an exclusive filmed interview with Ken Doka, author of more than 20 books, including "Grieving Beyond Gender: Understanding the Ways Men and Woman Mourn." "It's a common misunderstanding that grief follows a fairly predictable pattern," says Doka. "But each of us has our own pathway; each of us takes our own journey as we grieve."

âThis topic hits home right now and we are expecting a larger than usual turnout,â said Nikki Seguin, local coordinator for the event. The program will move from the Douglas Room to Agape Hall, the main sanctuary of the church, and will run from 6 to 7 p.m. Grief counselors will also be on hand for those who wish to consult them according to Seguin. She emphasized that this program is intended to help the community to cope with the tragic loss of 19 young firefighters who battled the recent Yarnell fire. This program, snacks and refreshments will be available free of charge. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Lifetree-Cafe-at-Prescott-AZ/448097548557532?fref=ts
