Death:OK (Let’s Talk About It) is a day of inspiration, information, and connection taking place October 17, 2015 on the campus of Reed College in Portland, Oregon. As part of an ongoing series profiling our presenters, we’re pleased to introduce you to…
Jennifer Wohl, LPC, presenting “Collage for the Grieving Heart.”
This is a hands-on session for anyone who has experienced the death of someone significant. Participants will create a heart-shaped collage to be used as a platform for lighting a tea light in commemoration of their loved one. The session will begin with lighting a candle, reading a poem, and saying aloud the names of those who have passed. Instruction on creating the collage will be provided as well as guidance as people work. The session will end with participants gathering in a circle to light their candles and experience a moment of silence in honor of the deceased.
