Open Call: “Grief Support 101” With The Creative Grief Coaching Studio

Tomorrow (15 January 2013, at 2pm EST), Kara and I will be doing an open call about the core themes in the approach to grief support that we teach in our Creative Grief Coaching Certification Course. It’ll be a sort of “Grief Support 101” and we’ll also be answering your questions about our next class which starts on 12 February. A few of our alumni will join us to share about their experiences of taking the class, and we’ll be giving out a passcode to the call attendees which can be used to access an extension on the Earlybird course fee for the February 2013 class.

You can find the full call-in details here.

No need to sign up – just pitch up for the call!
