The bittersweet moment of any annual meeting is the memorial ceremony to commemorate our own losses over the past year. But you don’t have to wait for that annual event to mourn those you have lost.
Grief doesn’t wait for a convention, which is why Funeral Professionals Peer Support and the Cremation Association of North America look forward to welcoming Glenda Stansbury as facilitator of the November peer support meeting to reflect on the losses you may have faced in your own life. Connect with Glenda and your peers to discuss personal bereavement while serving others on Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2023 at 8 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. CT / 5 p.m. PT.
A longtime funeral service veteran and grief expert, Stansbury serves as a celebrant for local funeral homes, on national convention stages and teaches the next generation of funeral celebrants as co-founder and dean of the InSight Institute Certified Celebrant Program.
“Death happens regardless of our time and space and situation,” she said. “Grief does not wait and demands that we embrace it.”
During the Nov 21 peer support meeting, Stansbury will talk about moments where funeral professionals mourn their own. She’ll share tips on taking care of yourself while you’re grieving and serving others. This meeting is your time to share, listen, find care and support one another.
