  Loving From the Outside In, Mourning From the Inside Out

Helping Yourself Heal When Someone Dies 


Purpose: We look forward to having you join us for this evening that gently embraces the reality that the capacity to love requires the necessity to mourn.  Dr. Alan Wolfelt is one of North America’s leading grief counselors and the author of many best-selling books about healing in grief. This compassionate program will acknowledge that if we didn’t love, we wouldn’t need to mourn. 

Why this program? This is an opportunity to learn some essential information that Dr. Wolfelt has learned in his three decades of “companioning” thousands of people in grief. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from a best-selling author about how to integrate grief into your life, your living, and your loving. If you know anyone who would benefit from this opportunity to embrace hope and healing, please let them know about this program. We look forward to having you, your family, and your friends join us.

  • Introduction: Loving From the Outside In, Mourning From the Inside Out
