if you're visiting for the first time, here's some words about In Loving Memory: A Journey of Remembrance....
i'm preparing my heart and mind to walk beside lots of hurting friends to help them get their memories preserved as opening day is just 2 days away for another round of a class i developed called: In Loving Memory.
We all know that the loss of a loved one can be one of the most trying and emotional experiences in your lifetime as you ride the waves of grief that follow that loss.
This is something I personally discovered after losing my mom, very suddenly and quite unexpectedly, in the summer of 2007.
After such a loss, when the grief washes away and the sunshine begins to peek into your life again, you find yourself left with a pile of memories that seem fleeting. Yes?
These seemingly fleeting memories leave you with a desperate urge to document every little detail of your loved one and the life they lived, but the thought of tackling such a task seems daunting. I've found that the sense of urgency is caused by the overwhelming fear that you'll forget before you have adequate time or energy to recount the life of the loved one you now miss so dearly.
In my online course, In Loving Memory, I will provide you with an abundance of starting points and journaling triggers, as well as layout samples and sketches to get you moving forward on making your own album of remembrance--all the while encouraging you to be gentle to yourself along the way.
This is definitely not a race to a finished album, but a process of documenting and healing all in one. It's scrapbooking as therapy, not just art.
If you'd like to record and honor the life of your loved one(s), and it has seemed too painful, too messy to begin, or just unapproachable, please consider joining me on a journey of remembrance this spring.
Class starts March 14th.
