November Come & Create (Virtual) Registration Deadline

Tuesday, November 16th
3:30--5:30 pm

Come & Create is a monthly virtual gathering with like-minded people who will silently create together.

Registerhttps://www.surveymonkey.com/r/grcprog2021

Dates: 3rd Tuesday of the month (Attend one or all)

April 20th, May 18th, June 15th, July 20th, August 17th, September 21st, October 19th, November 16th & December 21st.

Time: 3:30—5:30 pm

Format: 3:30—3:40 pm: Hello’s & Introductions

3:40—5:10 pm: Work time (everyone will be on mute so that you can have your own music/background noise or silence while you work)

5:10—5:30 pm: Opportunity to share what you worked on (not required if you would rather not share)

What to Create: Whatever you would like. This is time to work on any creative project, hobby, or interest you have. For example: doodling, card making, writing, painting, building a model (car, train), stitching or sewing, etc.

Supplies: You will need to provide your own supplies for your chosen project. It will be helpful to gather all supplies prior to the start time so you can take advantage of the full work time.

Not sure what to create? Once you register, we will email you a packet with ideas and suggestions. Or check it out here: https://www.horizonhomecareandhospice.org/content/blogs/grc_comeandcreate.pdf

Why create? When we are under stress, like when we are grieving, our brains are affected (our access to language, thinking, learning & attention, and emotional regulation all go down and “fear center” activity in the brain increases). However, our sensory systems stay on-line—movement, visual arts, music. Doing something creative or sensory helps to reduce stress and bring all of our brain systems back on line. This can be a powerful tool to help us cope with grief.

Why gather virtually? Having a dedicated time each month to create helps you build a habit. It gives you accountability and support from the others who have gathered.

Ask the Expert: Q&A about Intimacy through Grief Registration Deadline

Friday, November 19th
1:00--2:00 pm

It is not uncommon that people start to wonder about how intimacy can play into their lives as they are grieving, but we know it's also hard to know who to talk to about these questions. 

Let's remove the discomfort around the sensitive topics of love, intimacy, and sex through our grief journey. 

We welcome Dr. Cynthia Rassiga-West, a mental health expert, who will help guide us through talking about these sensitive, but important issues. 

Important Note: To increase participant's comfort, this webinar will be a confidential program--participants will not be able to see or interact with each other. We also have a confidential survey that will be available for registrants to ask questions prior to the program. This link will be shared via email once a participant has registered for the program.
