This in-person class is an expanded version of the workshop offered last fall. It is a four-session series facilitated by Deb Cowan, MA, MT-BC, a music therapist at Sharp HospiceCare.
The workshop will provide creative opportunities for gently exploring the loss of a loved one through poetry and music. No creative writing or musical experience is necessary. A commitment to attending all the classes is requested, as each session is built upon the previous ones.
Please register as soon as possible or no later than April 3, as space is limited. Please note that participants must have experienced the death of a loved one in order to attend.
If you need to cancel your registration for this event, please call 1-800-827-4277 Monday through Friday, 7 am to 7 pm, or log in to your account to cancel online.
This in-person class may be canceled or changed to a virtual group based on current COVID-19 health guidelines.
Sharp HospiceCare reserves the right to decline participation to any applicant. Registration does not guarantee admission.
Bereavement groups and events are offered at no cost. Donations are graciously accepted.
Deb Cowan, MA, MT-BC, is a certified hospice and palliative care music therapist for Sharp HospiceCare.
