Central Wyoming Hospice and Transitions will be hosting a Death Café at the Nicolaysen At Museum as part of their “Dia De Los Muertos” celebration. It’s an empowering conversation around death and dying, aimed at increasing awareness of and de-mystifying death to help people make the most of their adult lives. “It’s a space where you talk about death to become more engaged with life, “says Susan Burk, Community Liaison at CWHT. “Our society is much more removed from death than in the past,” says Burk. “The Death Café allows people to express their fears, hopes, and curiosity about death. You can also come and just listen. It’s not grief counseling, it’s an open and authentic discussion about death, and the conversations can go in some very interesting directions.” The Death Café will be 5:30pm at the Nicolaysen Art Musum. It is free and open to everyone. Coffee, treats, and companionship are provided. Please bring your thoughts, attitudes, hopes, and fears concerning death. “I believe that the culture of silence surrounding death should be broken through discussion, gathering, art, innovation, and scholarship.” -The Order of The Good Death
A new Grief Support Group for those who have lost a loved one to suicide will be starting up in November, hosted by Central Wyoming Hospice and Transitions. “Those that join us will be welcome to participate as much or as little as they are ready for. This will be a safe space for everyone to talk, listen, and realize that they are not alone in their loss,” says Shaina Eberly, BSW, who will be facilitating the group. “This will be great additional support during the Holiday season for those that have lost someone to suicide.” The Suicide Loss Grief Support Group will start November 7th, meeting on Tuesday evenings from 5:30pm-6:30pm at the CWHT Administration Office, 319 South Wilson. The group will run for 6 weeks, skipping November 21st (Thanksgiving week) and ending December 19th. For more information or to register, please call (307) 577-4832 or email Shaina at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For many, the holidays symbolize a poignant time for celebration, love, and connections with family. For those of us who have lost a loved one, it can also bring a time of remembrance. Our annual “Tree of Love” event is an opportunity to remember those special people in our lives. Please join us to celebrate the lives of those who have passed on Sunday, December 3rd, at 5:00pm at Central Wyoming Hospice, 319 S. Wilson St.
“Tree of Love” is both a remembrance of special people in our lives and an important source of much needed funds for our comprehensive patient care programs. Your gift carries with it a message of caring for others in the community while perpetuating the memory of someone special.
