Understanding Grief and Loss

In the third installment of our Together We! Thrive support series, Jim Kok, Executive Director of Chaplain Services for Christian Living Communities shared his experience and tips for coping with grief and loss. Jim Kok has served as a Chaplain for CLC since 1993, and is presently serving at Holly Creek. Issues of grief and loss are central to the work that he does, and he has been privileged to learn from others as we walk together through times of loss and difficulty.

All of us experience losses in our lives, each of which, great or small, cause us to grieve. For most of us, this past year has been especially difficult and filled with losses, and perhaps we haven’t taken the time, or have been too overwhelmed, to think about those losses and to grieve adequately. This session will remind us of what causes grief, how that grief manifests in our emotional, physical, and spiritual lives, and focus on healthy practices and resources to address the turmoil that grief can cause in our lives.

You can view the video replay on our Facebook page here. The next Together We! Thrive live event will be on March 9th at 2:30 pm MST. Our previous two events explored the topics of stress management and self compassion.
