HeartLight offers virtual and in person grief support groups, workshops, seminars and resources for individuals and organizations. People come to HeartLight Center to find understanding, shared experiences, authentic friendships and support.

Take a Pause… With Healing Laughter – Virtual Workshop

with Eileen Wolfington 

We invite you to take a pause… to come up for some air from your grief. It can feel challenging to access laughter during tragedy in our lives. And we welcome you to a supportive and gentle space with Eileen to explore breathing exercises, childlike play, and a little pause from the heaviness of our grief.
Laughter, coupled with varied movement and Yogic breathing brings oxygen to our body and brain making you feel healthier and more energetic and can help when we’re feeling “stuck” emotionally. No traditional yoga poses are used and no experience is required.
Suggested Donation $20  Registration is required.
All are welcome!

Meeting Thursday, May 16th on Zoom, 3pm (PT)/ 4pm (MST)/ 5pm (CT)/ 6pm (EST)
