Special Event Workshop: Animal Day of Remembrance - Your Healing Journey

  • May 18, 2013 · 8:30 AM

We warmly welcome you to join esteemed experts and leaders in the new and emerging field of service for animals and those who love them at beautiful Noah's; to share a day of thoughtful reflection and remembrance of animals whom we have loved and lost across our lifetime. Featuring Drs. Craig Haley & Kris Lecakes Haley, Tracy Rothstein, Pattie Rothstein, and practitioner Cindy Farrimond.

Each animal companion that touches our lives leaves their own unique mark on our hearts; a mark which can never be erased. It’s those little things about our animal friends that can remain a part of us forever. Please know that the bond you shared will continue and endure throughout your lifetime, and the love your friend left behind is yours to keep forever.

The backdrop for this unique and interactive day will unfold in a supportive, safe space where you will have the opportunity to learn, begin to heal, and honor the unbreakable connection you created with your cherished animal companion.

In this multi-faceted engagement, we will enter into empowering presentations, workshops and activities developed to better acquaint us with the components of the grief process, how we can navigate our way through it, and the personal growth that awaits us on the other side of our healing journey. Incorporated into this time together is a candle lighting ceremony designed to honor the animals whose lives have changed ours forever.

Interwoven into this special haven will be soothing experiences to help bring forth inner peace and calmness as you begin, or continue, on your positive healing journey. This is a time for you.

Tickets are strictly limited, and must be purchased in advance. Please RSVP early: http://www.meetup.com/animal-advocates-of-az/events/114251842/

We extend this invitation as a gentle reminder that we understand what you are going through and we offer you our heartfelt encouragement to treasure the lasting memories you have built.

Please note, anyone who is currently caring for an ailing companion, who is a gentle shoulder for someone working through loss, or who simply wishes to learn more on this subject are also more than welcome to attend.

You are encouraged to bring a photo or special reminder of the joy and love you have in your heart for your past and present cherished companions.


Delectable treats and lunch will be nourishing homemade, hand-crafted vegan creations by master chef baker RACHEL COLLETTA.

    We feel such immense gratitude for the heart, soul, and love that was poured into this memorable experience. We simply could not have offered this day without enormous help from all the hard-working folks that came together to make this such a lovely gathering. We are enormously grateful to our hard-working event volunteers. Many thanks to the caring and humble expert panel members, our most gracious moderator, and supremely talented chef, all who volunteered their time. We thank our generous workshop benefactors, and the many giving silent auction sponsors. Also, we are grateful to every single person, organization, and business who got the word out for this day. And most especially we thank the lovely attendees who were at the forefront of our hearts and minds when planning this empowering day filled with community and understanding... we thank you all.
