Loss of Dreams: Ambiguity, a Pandemic & Resiliency
Time & Location
About The Event
Are you on pandemic overload? Do you feel worn out from the pandemic do's and don'ts? Are you stuck on your real losses of people, events (wedding, deaths, anticipated events...) or the loss of dreams (the much awaited arrival of a baby who comes with physical or mental disabilities, the forever marriage that doesn't last, the perfect life that crumbles due to addiction)? Ambiguity is the vagueness and uncertainty that has overwhelmed us in this year of COVID 19 pandemic. Not knowing who is carrying the virus or when it will end, our sense of "normal" is constantly being challenged. We know the vaccine is coming, but when will I be able to return to normal? Both our physical and mental health have been affected by the need to social distance and keep ourselves and others safe from the deadly virus.
United Way of McLeod County and the McLeod County Corn and Soybean Growers Association invite you to "Loss of Dreams, Ambiguity, a Pandemic and Resiliency," a presentation by Ted Bowman, MDiv, Tuesday, March 23, 2021, 6:30-8:00pm via Zoom. Ted is a grief and loss counselor who has worked with school social workers, loss/survivor groups, ECFE and family educators, mental health and medical staff, and faith groups. He has been on the faculties of both the Universities of MN and St. Thomas, and authored several books.
