Strategies for finding peace after a loss will be discussed 7 p.m. CT Monday, Aug. 14 at Lifetree Café.

The program, titled “Coping with Grief: Find Your Path to Peace,” features a filmed interview with Ken Doka, a grief counselor and author of more than 20 books, including Grieving Beyond Gender: Understanding the Ways Men and Woman Mourn.

“It’s a common misunderstanding that grief follows a fairly predictable pattern,” said Doka. “But each of us has our own pathway; each of us takes our own journey as we grieve.”

During the program, Lifetree Café participants will have the opportunity to discuss self-care strategies they’ve used during times of grief.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is located at 1602 U.S. Highway 98 in Mexico Beach across from El Governor Motel.
