Mother’s Day: Love, Grieving, & Growing Compassion
A Second Sunday Seminar, With Larry Lincoln, MD and Anne Taylor Lincoln, LPC
Sunday, May 9th from 2:00 to 3:45
$25 by May 1st and $30 thereafter – Via Zooom
From the moment we leave our mother’s womb, we experience the bitter-sweetness of life. If we have the tools, willingness, and assistance to grieve our inevitable losses, we become more compassionate, centered, resilient, and grateful. Having experiential, as well as intellectual, knowledge that we have survived, and grown from, adversity also gives us the courage to take new risks so that we can live, and love, to our full potential. In this session, Larry will present how our deep inward journey can transform our relationship with ourselves and then with others in our community.
Strengthening compassion, for ourselves and others, is an on-going practice. Anne’s focus will be on “Talking Circles”, a process that we employed during our Growth & Transition pre-workshop staff meetings, and developed further in own family gatherings. After an introduction, which will include encouragements and cautions, we will have a guided experiential segment, followed by a brief discussion about how you might apply this technique in your life.
Lawrence Lincoln, MD Larry has practiced his medical specialties of Infectious Disease and Hospice for over 40 years in Tucson. Since its inception in 1991, he was the Medical Director of the Tucson Medical Center (TMC) Hospice Program. He also worked with Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, leading her five day “Life, Death, and Transition” workshops for over 10 years, promoting this unique group process through lectures, trainings, and workshops. In 1986, Elisabeth encouraged Larry to create the three day “Growth and Transition” program in Tucson, Arizona, under the auspices of the Tucson Medical Center. Over the years, Larry and Anne continued to develop the Growth and Transition/Grief and Loss program into an integrative experience – combining the physical and emotional release of the externalization process with current psychological theory. Larry is the author of “Reclaiming Banished Voices: Stories on the Road to Compassion,” edited, and encouraged, by Anne Taylor Lincoln.

Anne’s next focus, while continuing to be an active parent and grandparent, is on the further expansion of healing within communities.
