Topic A wonderful book on caregiving by Beth McLeod quotes a hospice director named Eileen who found herself suddenly faced with the terminal illness of her husband of many years. Eileen says “if you allow grief in, there’s nothing like it ... it deepens you like nothing else.” That challenge of “allowing grief in” will be the topic of Sandra Boyd’s presentation. Please join Sandra in exploring how we can all “allow grief in” more willingly and fruitfully.
Presenter REV. SANDRA BOYD is an Episcopal priest, retired from parish ministry, who continues to offer a course on Death and Dying for Regis University that she’s been teaching for nearly ten years. “It’s the most popular course in our program,” she reports, “because the students emerge from it enormously empowered for having ‘let death in’ for five weeks.”
