WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10

AVON – Beloved Companions
Pet Loss Grief Group – DORY DZINSKI, LPC
Our pets are our hearts. They are an indelible part of the fabric of our lives. When they leave us, the hole is nearly unbearable. However, the loss of a companion animal is a marginalized loss. Unless one has been lucky enough to experience the love of an animal, it is difficult to understand this loss. We may hear comments and questions that don’t match our feelings and we cannot find many places that will hold space for our pain. Come be with others who have sustained the loss of a beloved companion. I have been been facilitating grief support groups for over 11 years. For this group, there is simple sharing and holding space for one another. The topics are open-ended and respected. All levels of participation are honored. There is no charge but registration is requested- please call me at (860) 693-2840 or email at dorydzinski@comcast.net.

FARMINGTON – Farmington Hypnosis & Awareness Center L.L.C
An Evening with Spirit – MEDIUM ALTHEA DEPASCALE
As a Medium and Clairvoyant, I have the ability to connect to loved ones and pets who have crossed over to the other side. During this event I will be connecting attendees with their loved ones who have passed into spirit. Pets are also invited to connect with you. The connection we make to spirit may also help relieve and eliminate some of the fears we have associated with death.  Spirit allows us to know that our loved ones are at peace. From their dimension, spirit can see and experience our lives. As they experience our lives from their unique vantage point, they can make us aware that they will be there when our time comes to leave this world. Held at 128 Garden St. Contact: (860) 677-8650 acdepascale@comcast.net
Time 7 to 10 p.m.  Cost: $30  There is no handicap access.
