WHAT IS IT LIKE?
Our workshop day will be a mixture of learning, laughing and feeling. Alan will share what he has learned on his own grief journey and from the thousands of other grievers who have shared their stories with him. The workshop will offer real tools and ideas to consider for those who are grieving and for those who work with the bereaved. Powerful music and a down to earth message are the hallmark of A Day with Alan Pedersen.
