Guidance From Wisdom and Spiritual Teachers as We Face Loss  

Hebrew sage Martin Buber taught: “Suffering brings reflection, and reflection brings wisdom.”  Join us as we reflect on and discuss Perennial Wisdom that has encouraged and enlightened people around the globe throughout the ages as they grieve. We will have time for presentation, discussion, quiet reflection, journaling, wandering the Center’s grounds, and sharing stories-of-example. Lunch is included. 

Annie Hisle is a practicing psychotherapist and bereavement counselor and is a retired Montgomery Hospice grief counselor group facilitator. She is a spiritual companion, a home bound minister, workshop facilitator, and author of two books: My House Burned Down and Now I Can See the Stars and Remembering Smiles. She enjoys seven nearby grandchildren, yoga, movies, meals, long walks with her spouse and/or friends, as well as participating in her Shalem Centering Prayer Group, her bi-monthly women’s group, and a book group.
