HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!

Here’s a little background and some more details about the Grief and Happiness Alliance Nonprofit Event and its genesis:

The last couple of years have been challenging. Overall, I have been faring well enough and am most thankful for the time available for growth and exploration. But the best part of this last year has been working with the Grief and Happiness Alliance.  

Recently, the Grief and Happiness Alliance has grown into a Nonprofit to expand its efforts at offering comfort, understanding and support as well as pathways to happiness for those who are grieving no matter what or how recent the loss.  

The Grief and Happiness Alliance Nonprofit was founded by Emily Thiroux Threatt, a long time friend. Her simple goal to help individuals deal with grief and loss grew out of her experiences with personal loss and her wish to help others with the understanding that she gained through her journey. The pandemic and its devastating effects on so many lives have brought further attention to the need for this type of work.  Thus, this organization was formed and this event was planned.

THE EVENT:

“Searching for Light: Finding Balance during the Equinox” is the first virtual zoom event hosted by the Grief and Happiness Alliance Nonprofit Organization.  It takes place on Sunday, March 20, 2022, at 9 am HST/12 pm PST/3 pm EST.* The event will introduce the Alliance and its purpose and goals as well as share happiness practices.  There will be a general session and some breakout sessions that will introduce participants to practices that help individuals move forward in their grief and loss. There is no charge for this event, although donations to support the work of the Alliance would be appreciated. You can register for the event for free.  When you register, you will be provided the link to the actual zoom event.    

THE ACTUAL ALLIANCE:

The Grief and Happiness Alliance is more than the Searching for Light Event. Its website offers information, useful resources, and ongoing weekly sessions that help participants deal with life, death and moving on. Even if you cannot attend the Zoom Event on the Equinox, consider visiting the website and joining the Alliance to stay informed of future resources and events. Here is the link for the Grief and Happiness Alliance website.

GETTING THE WORD OUT:

Please share this event and information with all those you think may find the service helpful or who have experienced some sort of loss.  Of course, that pretty much means everyone!  Thanks.

SUPPORTING THE WORK OF THE ALLIANCE:

If you want to make a donation before attending the Searching for Light Event or even joining the Grief and Happiness Alliance, here’s a link to make a donation.     

*TIME.  TIME. TIME.  

Emily, our founder, lives in Hawaii and that is where the weekly virtual writing-through-grief sessions are hosted.  The rest of us are spread throughout the country, so every time we meet, we list all the varying time zones.  Thus, we try to always list the time for any meeting as Hawaii, Pacific and Eastern times.  A couple people on the board actually live in Mountain time, but they are on their own remembering that their start time is an hour later than Pacific.  Anyway, we trust you will figure out your area’s start time.  I hope to see you there!

A PERSONAL NOTE: 

Those who follow my blog know that I most often find solace in Nature.  It gives me peace, comfort, sense of balance and well being. I can’t wait to get out this Spring to find some wildflowers, but until then, I am sharing some favorites for a little visit to Nature.  Second to Nature, joining the Grief and Happiness Alliance and attending “The Searching for Light” event is the next best thing to finding comfort and solace.  I hope to see you there!
