Learn how to transform the journey of loss into an experience that makes you stronger during a Loving Spirit webinar series that will launch today.

The free webinar will be available beginning today in a partnership through the Community Library.

Registration is open at www.lovingspiritwebinar.com and a workbook will be available to download after registration.

The webinar is available to view anytime through Dec. 31, 2020, and will be accessible on computers, notepads, cell phones and Apple TV. It is closed-captioned for the hearing impaired, and a Spanish edition is scheduled for release by July 1.

The webinar will teach techniques to support the recovery process of adults who have suffered a major loss in their life, whether the death of a loved one, a divorce, a career change or some other personal change. It will help participants understand how and why we grieve and how to grow stronger from that loss.

Loving Spirit and the Community Library had planned to partner on an all-day workshop in April, but the workshop had to be cancelled by the coronavirus pandemic.

“COVID-19 forced us to cancel our workshops, yet inspired us to find an alternative way to help those who are in pain and grieving,” said Dayle Spencer, board president of Loving Spirit, a Sun Valley-based non-profit. “AS much as we’re missing meeting in person, we’re thrilled to be ale to extend our reach, especially during these days of so much loss.”

In fact, the entire community will benefit from the webinar, whereas the in-person workshop would have been limited to a small number of participants, noted Martha Williams, programs and education manager at The Community Library.

“Loving Spirit has been so generous in partnering with libraries, universities, hospitals, hospices and other organizations around the country to make this webinar available to all who need it,” she added. “No matter what your story, we can all use support and connection right now.”

Spencer and her husband Will founded Loving Spirit following the death of their daughter Allie at age 28 from the flu. Dayle Spencer wrote two books on grief and loss in the aftermath: “Loving Allie, Transforming the Journey of Loss,” and “Loving Spirit, Self-Help for the Journey of Loss.”

Her organization has held workshops in Idaho, Utah, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Ohio and Illinois during the past six years. They’re always free for participants, made possible by donations of organizations and individuals.
