“If I Could Mend Your Heart” Event Report
January 30, 2018
On January 30, 21 women attended a thought-provoking presentation by Mary Farr about grief. Although we normally use the term grief only as related to death, it is actually an appropriate term for many losses in our lives. Mary observed that women often lack self-compassion, but should treat themselves during grief like they would a friend. She also spoke about hope and being on a journey toward wholeness. There are many actions that can contribute to our own healing or the healing of others with one of the most important that we listen to others and really hear what they are saying. Mary brought a wealth of ideas from her extensive career in the worlds of hope, healing, and humor.
