    Contact: Mary Bear Shannon   610-446-3082 ext 216   shannon@haverfordlibrary.org
   

Time heals all wounds. Be strong. Grieve alone. Move on. Don’t feel bad. Keep busy.

Perhaps someone has told you (or you’ve said to yourself) “You have to let go and move on in your life.” You know they’re right. You realize you’re no longer able to find happiness in life’s pleasures. Perhaps you’re holding part of yourself back and not being a full partner in your relationships, and maybe you’re pretending that you’re just fine when actually you feel … incomplete. But HOW do you let go? How can you move on?

Ellen Monsees is a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist® who has experienced deep personal loss and found resolution, discovering new purpose and joy in life. She will introduce the Grief Recovery Method and how it can help you complete the unfinished business that results in unresolved grief. She will examine some commonly held myths about grief, and talk about actions you can take to help you deal with loss due to death, divorce, or other conditions – or even improve an existing relationship with a living person.  Most of the help available to grievers tends to be intellectual or spiritual, but grief is emotional in nature. The Grief Recovery Method focuses on providing the tools to discover and address emotional truths, allowing you to release pain, move beyond loss, and participate more openly and fully in all your relationships. 

This program is free and open to the public.  No registration required.

You attended the funeral. You sent a condolence card. You made a donation to charity. You provided a meal. Now what? How helpful are these actions? Are they enough? What more could you do?

When a friend or family member is suffering from loss, you may find yourself at a loss because you want to help but don’t know how. How can you fix the problem? How can you ease their pain? How can you relieve the burden? Is it possible to make the bereaved feel better or recover faster?

Ellen Monsees is a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist® who has experienced deep personal grief and found resolution, discovering new purpose and joy in life. She will explain loss from the griever’s point of view. Learn what the mourner is going through and what you – as family, friend, neighbor, coworker, concerned community member – can do to help.

This program is free and open to the public.  No registration required.

A good business plan is the key element for launching or growing a business enterprise. But the business plan is not a "once and done" document to be put on the shelf. Successful businesses know how to use the business plan to run their enterprises. This presentation focuses on what a business plan is and what it is not. The attendee will learn why the business plan is so important and how it is used to make a variety of business decisions. The presentation concludes with a discussion of the various components of the business plan and their place in the document.

Presented by Bob Wingerter and Chester and Delaware County SCORE, a non-profit organization providing free professional guidance and information to assist in starting or growing a business by offering free mentoring and regularly scheduled workshops and seminars.
