Healing our Losses
Saturday, April 21st 12:00pm-4:00pm at Blessed Sacrament Church, 4540 El Cerrito Drive, San Diego 92115. This free workshop enables people to begin to heal their unresolved grief and to make necessary changes in their lives.

Dr. Jack Miller gives this workshop out of gratitude for all that he has been given along the way. Dr. Miller is a former Catholic priest who founded The Center for Education on Death and Dying, Inc. and Cook County Hospital’s Palliative Care Program. Dr. Miller also helped to establish Chicago House—the Midwest’s first residence for people with A.I.D.S.

Dr. Miller, author of
Healing our Losses, has perfected a process, which enables people to resolve their grief. He calls this: The Phoenix Project. The Phoenix Project is an orchestrated rite of passage, which facilitates both emotional and spiritual growth. This journey has its origins in ancient tribal rites of initiation. Participation in this workshop is a prerequisite for accompanying Dr. Miller on an intense 12-week journey at a future date. Call Blessed Sacrament at 619-582-5722 for more info.
