Yolo Hospice offers a variety of workshops to help local people process their grief. They include:

* Journaling Through Grief: A monthly workshop that explores thoughts, feelings and reactions to loss through the written word.

“Grief is a natural emotional response to loss,” a news release said. “Journaling thoughts, feelings and reactions may help clarify and express the internal effects of grief. Whether you are new to journaling or have experience with it, this may be the workshop for you.”

The workshop meets from 4 to 6 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month at Yolo Hospice, 1909 Galileo Court, Suite A, in South Davis. There is no fee to participate.

Pre-registration is required — call 530-601-5756 — but you may join the workshop in any month following your registration.

* Understanding Children’s Grief: This free workshop provides an introduction to understanding how children grieve and the ways to help support them through their process and at different stages of growth.

It meets from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, at Yolo Hospice. It is appropriate for anyone supporting grieving children, including families, teachers, counselors and clergy. RSVP at 530-601-5756.

* Healing Through Yoga: Participants can learn to cope with grief through breathing techniques, basic yoga postures, discussion and education. Yoga can replenish energy, improve sleep and relax the mind and body.

The free workshop runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Davis Holistic Health Center, 1403 Fifth St., Suite B. RSVP by Oct. 18 to 530-601-5756.

* Grief and Loss, Healing Through Yoga: For those who have lost a loved one, this six-week program will explore grief through the use of basic yoga postures, discussion and education. No experience is necessary.

Yolo Hospice bereavement specialist Colleen McDonald uses gentle movements, adjusted to make the process easy and comfortable for anyone, even those with physical limitations.

The group meets from 6 to 8 p.m. Mondays, Nov. 4-Dec. 9, at Yolo Hospice. There is no fee, but registration is requested by Nov. 1. Call 530-601-5756.
