Into the Depths of Grief: a Conversation from the Heart | Woodbury Public Library | Thursday, December 8th 6:30PM

Grief is not a comfortable subject to talk about for many people. Feeling alone is one of the toughest parts to grieving. Denying ignoring or repressing emotions can be very dangerous for one’s well-being. Repressed feelings can be expressed through anger, guilt and depression. These emotions can create barriers that can impede healing your heart, risk loving again and in moving forward.

Join Karen Anderson-Fignon, a Licensed Clinical Art Therapist and grief counselor for a conversation from the heart at the Woodbury Public Library on Thursday, December 8 at 6:30 PM.
