Event Description

Your Soaring Spirits team has designed a unique and cost-free eighteen week year-end program which will be recognizing and exploring a huge variety of traditions and customs, beginning with celebrating the tradition of welcoming sweetness into the year ahead during Rosh Hashanah, and ending with ushering in the New Year of 2021 with intention. We will include themes associated with the Fall Equinox, Yom Kippur, Canadian and US Thanksgiving, Veteran’s Day, Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, Chanukah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and we are even throwing in Festivus for a bit of fun! 

The program will include a theme for each week, video descriptions of the ritual or tradition being acknowledged (created by one of your widowed community members), a hosted weekly Zoom event relating to the theme we are exploring, weekly entertainment, traditional recipes, and our Holiday Hope tips. All of this is designed to support widowed people through the end of 2020 and to help us begin 2021 with hope, in the company of our widowed community. 

Our intention is to support YOU through the holidays and rituals during which you may be especially missing your person, and at a time when you may not have access to your usual avenues of support and encouragement. 

Registration is FREE of charge and open now! You are welcome to share this event with your friends and families - we would love to encourage and uplift as many people as possible with this inclusive, meaningful, community event.
