Loving animals brings immense joy, a sense of purpose and deep fulfillment to the animal lover's heart. The journey with our beloved companions however, also has its inevitable good-byes.  When we experience the loss of an animal friend, it is normal to feel the intense pain of a broken heart, and sometimes even become trapped in grief.  

Led by Dr. Linda Harper, a clinical psychologist and pet loss support group facilitator, this private 2-hour workshop offers innovative strategies for finding your unique way through this difficult time.    Using worksheets, examples and interactive exercises, "Honor your Feelings, Reframe the Story"  will help you restore peace of mind so you can  celebrate that special bond with gratitude, and remember and retell your story with  joy and love.
