May Walk- May 21, 2016

We have chosen a date for our 2016 May Walk- It will be May 21st, 2016 at Genesee Park again. If you would like to be a fundraising champion please contact Development Director Stephanie Murray – stephaniem@healingcenterseattle.org

Thank you for all who attended our 2015 Annual May Walk on Saturday May 30th. We had a beautiful day at Genesee Park and Playfield and were able to honor our loved ones with over 80 clients, staff, and volunteers.

From the voice of one of our treasured walkers, the Walk was “an opportunity to see familiar faces, as well as people who I hadn’t seen in a couple of months and I’m not sure when I’ll see them again… I can’t imagine being where I am now–physically, emotionally, and socially, without what the Healing Center provided and continues to provide me”.

We are leaving our  May Walk fundraising site open through June for any final donations: www.maywalk2015.kintera.org or visit next year’s site here!

Writing Through Loss with Abigail Carter

Following the loss of her husband in the attacks on the World Trade Center, Abby observes that, “like widow(er)s everywhere, this is my unintentional life.” One of the best therapies for grief is to tell the story of this unintentional life.

In this workshop, you will learn to capture those stories with all their difficult emotions and memories and put them down on paper, an exercise that will astonish you with the power it has to heal.

Come prepared to write and draw and let’s harness the incredible opportunity for creativity that grief has to offer. Please bring a notebook and pen. Cost for all 4 sessions: $50
