Processing Grief Through Writing and Meditation:
A support group for those grieving a great loss.
6 weekly session
Fridays 7 - 8:30pm
March 3rd - April 7th
There are so many things that evoke a major sense of loss: the declining health and quality of life of a loved one, a separation or death. Whether long awaited or sudden, these losses represent a major change in life, and change is stressful. How do we care for ourselves while dealing with the medical, financial, and emotional work that we need to do? Having support as you process can be a tremendous benefit.
In this group we will explore our thoughts and feelings around the issues of our grief through structured journal writing, meditation, and discussion. We will use expressive writing to make sense of emotional upheaval without becoming overwhelmed.
Bring writing materials (pen, pencil, markers) and a notebook to each session.
Please note that while this is a mutually supportive group that can be restorative and therapeutic, it is not a substitute or replacement for therapy or other professional services.
Participants will be expected to attend all sessions. As a courtesy to the coordinators and other members of the group, be sure to let them know if you are not able to attend.
The same zoom link will be used for all meetings. If you want to receive weekly reminders with the link be sure to register for each one.
