The Growth and Transition Workshops, Tucson, Arizona


The Growth and Transition Workshop is an intense, three day residential process inspired by Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross’ ground breaking “Life, Death, and Transition” Workshops, which ended in 1995. Dr. Kubler-Ross initially created five day workshops for dying patients. However, it soon became apparent that their accompanying loved ones and caregivers were equally burdened, carrying the pain of their own personal losses as well as the challenges of their current responsibilities.
