Planets and Galaxies - Therapeutic weekend for grieving families
By Maria Jasenkova - Project Leader
This year thanks to support of many people and institutions we were able to organize Therapeutic weekend for grieving families. From 27th till 29st of September, 2019 in Podkylava 14 families from all over Slovakia (24 adults and 21 children) attended weekend activities led by team of Plamienok professionals (therapists and psychologists) and trained volunteers.
Through the theme “Planets and Galaxies“ we tried to help families in their bereavement process. We prepared a program with many activities: trip to the castle, yoga, sport, music concert, sharing and talking about the loss through the topic of planets and galaxies. Families with their children could symbolically create their own planet and be part of the Universe where also other planets move. We tried to show the families that they are not alone, we can inspire each other how to move forward in life and still there is a possibility to experience nice and joyful moments in their lives.
We are pleased to be able to publish these pictures that demonstrate wisdom and inner transformation of many children and give us a lot of satisfaction.
