Voices of Grief - Screening & Discussion

Voices of Grief - Screening & Discussion

Wednesday, April 22 - 6pm

Grief is universal, affecting everyone in our communities as we each face the challenges of life transitions in a culture that wants to look the other way.

For those who have ever struggled in knowing what to say or do in the presence of profound loss—your own or someone else’s—the film, “Voices of Grief: Honoring the Sacred Journey” offers a hope-filled new perspective of how to successfully navigate grief, a common reality of the shared human experience.

This award-winning documentary film interweaves individuals’ personal stories of loss and healing together with the insight of nationally renowned experts in the fields of grief and mourning.

The film demonstrates that, while every journey through grief is unique, learning the most supportive things we can do and say is enormously helpful to the person grieving as well as the one who offers companionship. We will be screening the movie followed with a discussion of the film. A short trailer of the film can be viewed here.

This screening and discussion will take place on Wednesday, April 22, 2020 at 6:00 pm, at West Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Conservatory at 225 Belmont Avenue, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004. Free parking is in front of the Conservatory and directions on how to get to the Conservatory are available here. A $5 donation is suggested and reservations are required, as space is limited. Donations can be made at the door.
