Conscious Grieving

Cultivating Hope in the Land of Loss

As global losses mount, our personal losses can become “disenfranchised.” Our hearts may struggle to navigate the pervasive presence of loss around us.

On May 23rd, 2020, Mercy by the Sea Retreat and Conference Center in Madison, CT presents a live, online gathering to explore and express our experiences of loss and grief, including those related to Covid19. Lisa Irish, MEd, MA, BCC will host a time of reflection and sharing, as she draws from her experience in bereavement chaplaincy and spiritual direction. This program will support our individual and collective grief in these times of isolation, exploring the transformative nature of grief and nourishing the sacred strands of connectedness between us.

Fr Richard Rohr says of Lisa’s book, Grieving the Sacred Art: Hope in the Land of Loss, “…The roadmap is wise, but sensitive - grounded in hope - and reminds us to rest in God’s healing love.” For detailed information and registration go to:
