Hope, Healing and Aloha: Hawaii Regional Grief Conference 2020
 "Grief is the expression of 'LOVE' for the one you lost ~ Lets 'HEAL' together." 

The Honolulu Chapter of The Compassionate Friends (TCF) is proud to host "Hope, Healing and Aloha: Hawaii Regional Grief Conference 2020". With a lineup of prominent speakers on the subject of grief and healing, this conference presents an opportunity for our Hawaii community to experience a TCF conference in our own backyard. We also welcome with open arms those who reside outside our great state and encourage you to join us for this important conference while spending time in Hawaii. No matter where we come from, we all share a desire to better understand and cope with the loss of our loved ones and the grief that subsequently entered our lives.
 
Beyond the wonderful speakers and workshops, we trust you will benefit from the opportunity to meet and connect with others who are experiencing the same indescribable pain. There is a great measure of comfort that we find in sharing our common experiences of loss. The conference will feature workshops on all aspects of grief, including on child loss and sibling loss. All the speakers have presented at TCF National Conferences and have made a big impact on those seeking hope. 

Our conference also presents a unique opportunity for the professional community in Hawaii and beyond. Physicians, therapists, counselors and any professional helping patients suffering through grief can gain invaluable insights from these prominent national speakers.

Please take a moment to read through the Speaker Bios and Workshops here for additional information about their backgrounds and their presentation topics. There is something of interest for everyone, no matter where you are on your grief journey.
