Attending to our Life Losses

April 28, 11:15AM-12:45PM

A workshop by Carmen Wilde as part of the Calgary Waldorf School's 9th Annual Gateways Conference - A Conference on Childhood for Parents, Educators & Caregivers. REGISTRATION REQUIRED.

Many of us are walking through the world carrying the heaviness of grief and few of us have been shown how to tend to it. This workshop will offer us ways to hold our sorrows with reverence and learn meaningful practices that allow us to bring our grief the attention and witnessing it is asking for. In doing so, we can then teach our children how to be in relationship with the grief they will encounter as they move through their lives.


The conference is limited to 150 participants on a first come, first served basis. 

Register before March 18th for our Early Bird Prize Draw – a $50.00 Gift Certificate to the Pixie Hut!
