Schedule for the day:

9:00 am - 9:30 am Welcome

9:30 am -11:00 am Breakout sessions

  • • Nutrition and Healthy Choices with Linda L. Quimby, MS, RD, LDN, Clinical Dietitian with the University of Tennessee Medical Center When you’re grieving you might experience decision fatigue. This happens in response to the number of decisions you’ve been forced to make over a very short period of time, deteriorating the quality of those decisions. As you can imagine, what you eat – the result of small decisions we make throughout each day – is a common victim of decision fatigue. Suddenly, making “good” choices about what you eat seems strenuous and even debilitating. So you opt out of the decision altogether and forgo eating, or make the easiest and most comforting decision and gulp down an unhealthy meal of French fries and donut holes. Linda will share expert advice on proper nutrition and health choices.
  • Life Legacy and Life Care Planning with Gabrielle Blake, LCSW Do you ever wonder if you\'ve planned for the unexpected things of life or set about an intention for how you want to live your life? Life Legacy and life care planning is about so much more than what you\'ll someday leave behind. Gabe, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Elder Care Coordinator with Franklin and Kyle Elder Law will offer insight into Life Care Planning and creating a legacy for yourself and your family in remembrance of your child.

11:00 am - 12:00 pm Lunch

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm Breakout Sessions

  • Yoga and Movement with Alex Fox, Certified Yoga instructor Yoga helps us loosen the emotional and physical tightness in our bodies caused by grief. It is also a way to find peace and stability during a time when this is missing from our lives. Yoga offers self-reflection, the practice of kindness, self-compassion, and continued growth and self-awareness. Alex, a Certified Yoga instructor and owner of Fox Den Yoga and Fitness of Morgantown, West Virginia, will bring energy and joy while teaching the importance of movement through Yoga. No experience necessary, for all fitness levels.
  • Writing your Grief: Journaling with Kimberly Becker, MDiv Ever wanted to journal as part of your healing process, but you\'re not sure where to start? Then this breakout session is for you. Published author and chaplain Kim Becker will introduce you to the art of journaling and suggest ways that writing can be part of your healing process. No writing experience necessary. This is a safe space with both guided exercises and time for free expression. (Journal materials provided).
