LiveOnNY is meant to convey the duality and positivity of organ and tissue donation. Through donation, recipients and donors live on. Recipients live on through the selfless act of donors. Donors live on via a legacy made stronger as a result of their donation, and they live on through others.
Heather will be offering Relaxation Meditation for Grief for donor families as a service offered by LiveOnNY (This is a closed event for donor families).
Managing Grief During the Holidays Workshop. The holidays are stressful enough when you are not grieving. If you have experienced a major loss, this holiday season will be different than the last, and whether you share your grief openly, or keep things to yourself, managing your internal and external struggles will be less challenging once you master a few basic coping skills and plan how you want to approach the holidays. During this workshop, we will explore how you can manage the painful and mixed feelings that accompany grief, maintain your physical health, and explore how new and old traditions and rituals can support you during this tough time. We will discuss the three principles of self-compassion: self-kindness, common humanity and mindfulness, and consider how they can help you navigate the holiday season.
During this keynote presentation, Heather Stang, author of Mindfulness & Grief, will share inspirational stories and practical tips that will help harness the power of self-compassion as self-care, so participants can reduce your suffering and reengage with this one precious life. Attendees will also receive access to guided meditations, so they can practice self-compassion for years to come. This keynote is part of a day-long wellness event presented by Gilchrist Hospice as part of their continuing care for the families they support.
During this four day Survivor Seminar for Military Families, Heather will offer a variety of workshops in which attendees can try out mindfulness-based techniques to reduce grief-related suffering and stress.
