Father Jim Cogley
We are delighted to welcome Fr. Jim Cogley back to the Tara Centre to facilitate what we know will be another powerful workshop. This Seminar will explore loss in its many facets and how it is also an invitation to wholeness. While so many experience loss, so few achieve full recovery but remain stuck with an existence rather than a life.
“Grief never ends…But it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack
of faith…it’s the price of love..” Jim Cogley
