Healing of Memories for Spouses and Significant Others

Friday, Mar 31, 7:00pm
Sunday, Apr 2, 2:00pm

Margaret Fell and Sheila Laughton

Free for spouses and significant others of veterans.

The grief, loss and trauma experienced by service members and veterans also can be felt by their spouses and significant others. In addition, family members may experience long separations fraught with worry and fear.


This workshop is devoted to the spouses and significant others of service members and veterans and will provide them with a safe experiential and interactive way to address anger, loss, grief and guilt. The same materials and structure of a Healing of Memories workshop will be used, including individual story sharing, facilitated group discussions and quiet personal reflection.


Retreat fee: Free for spouses and significant others of veterans. Pre-registration required. Call Mike Wold, 651.687.9767.


This program is provided free to veterans through a grant from the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation in honor of Father Ray Bucher, OFM.
