Making Space for Grief in Our Lives 9:00 AM Hannaford Hall Auditorium, USM , Portland

The annual Thresholds Conference brings the community together to learn about end of life. This year’s focus is grief. Woven in and out of every life, grief is the faithful companion we don’t want when someone we love dies. It inserts itself in our relationships, it follows us into the workplace, and it changes us forever in ways we could never have imagined. The other side of grief is its potential to be our greatest teacher, the source of our strength, and the catalyst for growth. Join us for real conversations about grief, professional advice on coping, and tips for helping friends, co-workers, and family members, and perhaps even yourself.

Kate Braestrup, bestselling author and chaplain with the Maine Warden Service will give the keynote address. Daryl Cady (CEO, Hospice of Southern Maine) and Carol Schoneberg (Bereavement Services Manager, Hospice of Southern Maine) will have a fireside chat about grief in the workplace. The Conference will wrap up with several people from the community sharing poignant stories of loss, ranging from death of a parent or spouse, to loss as a result of an overdose and suicide.

All are encouraged to attend – the general public, business leaders, healthcare professionals, faith community, and anyone wanting to learn more.

Tickets are $25 and include lunch. For more information and to register: https://www.hospiceofsouthernmaine.org/thresholds
