When Roselee Blooston’s husband Jerry, died suddenly overseas nine years ago, she entered two foreign territories: that of the Middle East, and the even more daunting one of grief itself. Her dual journeys gave her perspective on who she had been during her marriage, and who she could become, now that it was after.  An experienced teacher, author, and speaker, Roselee has much to offer others mourning a loved one, about how to frame their loss, carry that love forward, and honor the past, while becoming a new you. Workshop participants will come away with concrete techniques, using guided imagery, writing, and the sharing of personal stories, with which to move into the future. Jane Brody, New York Times bestselling author, and a widow herself, called Roselee’s book, DYING IN DUBAI-a memoir of marriage, mourning, and the Middle East, “a helpful and, yes, healthy lesson for surviving the trials and tribulations of widowhood and the essential task of becoming a "new you." Roselee looks forward to sharing what she has learned with Camp Widow.
