Dance both moves our bodies and frees our souls. In this workshop Allison will be providing basic moves and terminology for several ultra beginner line dances. While we learn to dance we will also be learning the importance of self-care and being introduced to great ways of including movement in our daily lives. Join us for a fun workshop that will provide you with dance skills you can use when you get home.
Middle Widowed: Hope and Healing for those Widowed 3-5 years
Prolonged grief disorder (colloquially referred to as “complex grief”) was only recognized in 2022 with the publication of the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health). It is estimated that 10% of all grievers from natural causes and 49% of all grievers from unnatural losses experience Prolonged Grief. This workshop will discuss recent developments in the field of grief and bereavement and provide resources and self-assessment tools for Campers.
Do you feel like a widowed imposter? Have you questioned whether you belong in the “worst club in the world?” Are you keeping secrets about how your person lived or died? When we lose the one we love, we are forced to reckon with who our person was, how they lived (and maybe how they died), the good, bad, and ugly of our relationship, and sometimes even the secrets we kept due to stigma, fear, or guilt. This workshop is for anyone who is struggling with feeling like they have to hide parts of themselves, their story, or their spouse’s story from others.Together, we’ll consider all the ways society (and sometimes even ourselves) silence and shame our stories. We’ll unpack the tools necessary for moving forward with authenticity: courage, boundaries, genuineness, humility, honesty, and self-respect. We’ll rumble with the why and break free of the toxic belief that our stories aren’t to be told as they are. We’ll also consider ways to heal your relationship when there is only one of you left to do the work. Your imperfect love and your loss are just as valid as others.
