Blue Christmas - December 16th

December 16th from 9:30-2:00

It is that time of year when joy is all around.  Lights, tinsel and gift giving are on everyone’s mind.

What if Christmas time brings sadness or emotional distress? 

Often loss, any loss death of a loved one, loss of a job or relationship, estrangement from family or friends creates sorrow at a time when culture expects you to be joyfilled.  These losses are often compounded during the Christmas season.  What if all you want to say is “Bah! Humbug!” and no one will allow it.  Come and let down your grief.  Share time in a safe space where you can speak openly about your feelings regarding this time of year.   Bring your blues and see if we can leave them in the circle so you can leave with a lighter heart and a purpose to get you through the Santa-season.
