Dr. Mo Therese Hannah, Professor of Psychology at Siena College, joins us to discuss grief, the afterlife, and life after loss. She does this from the perspective of both a professional clinical psychologist and a bereaved parent. She will be discussing the difficulties faced by those who have lost loved ones in addition to suggested strategies for coping with grief. Many find hope after encountering evidence that our loved ones do indeed survive physical death, something that Dr. Hannah both recognizes and encourages.

Grief Transformation Retreats

Forever Family Foundation Grief Retreats are designed as a complete experience. The weekend includes Spirit Communication, but also exposes the attendee to the various ways that we can continue our relationship with those loved ones who have crossed before us. Attendees whose focus is solely on the medium readings are cautioned that the nature of mediumship is such that there are never guarantees that all in attendance will receive a reading. The focus at the retreat is on the total healing process, and those who wish only to make a medium connection to a loved one in spirit are urged to seek the services of a medium for a private reading in a different venue.
