Where: Hospice of Acadiana
2600 Johnston Street
Lafayette, LA 70503

Want encouragement that death has not severed the ties with your loved one? That's what Kathryn Elliott brings to her audiences. However, there's so much more. She will share how, after 22 years of marriage her husband died - but first promised that he would continue to connect with her. Dr. Elliott quickly discovered that though she had thought the space between our world and the world of those who have died was huge, it is actually quite thin. She shares dramatic, heart-touching stories of the ongoing connection they share. Her stories will encourage you to discover your own Thin Space moments.
Pre-registration is required. Call 337-232-1234.

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Where: Hospice of Acadiana

Creativity can be very healing. As we create, whether that be with art, dance, music, prayer forms, woodworking, writing and journaling or gardening and cooking, we tap into those non-verbal knowing places in ourselves that do not always surface through speech. Creative exercises give us more information about ourselves and enhance our healing.
Starting February 1st on first and third Fridays and ending May 3rd. Catherine Wallace, LCSW and Jessica Johnson, LPC of the Center for Loss and Transition will offer creativity and sharing to help grievers heal.
Pre-registration is required for all seven sessions as materials will be prepared, and space is limited. Please call 337-232-1234 to register.
