It doesn't have to be this way.

Imagine if the clutter was lifted and your space only contained things you love and were useful. Imagine if you had clarity around what was important and could let go of the rest. What opportunities would you chase? How would you spend your time?

In this three-hour interactive workshop, you will explore how you want to feel in your space, experience the emotional connection you have to your things, create a vision for your ideal lifestyle, and walk away with some tips to use in your own space.

When life asks us to say goodbye—to our beloveds, our relationships, our dreams, our jobs—it also invites us to say hello. Hello to altered perspectives, to unexpected joys, to awareness that there are gifts in grief and there’s magic in mourning.

“Choosing Hello in Goodbye” is a free, experiential and interactive workshop created to explore and shift the ways we process (or quite often don’t process) the goodbyes in our lives. The workshop will give you knowledge and tools that you can use to transform loss into learning, pain into purpose, and grief into gratitude.

Facilitator Karen Austin invites you to bring your sense of humor, an open and curious mind, and your friends (because loss, like most things, is sweeter when it’s shared).
