The Journaling Workshop will be taking a summer break, starting back up in September 2021.
We are meeting via zoom for the foreseeable future
Journaling is one of the most recommended activities for those processing grief, though many people find it difficult to start and/or maintain this practice. That is why we will be offering a Journaling Workshop every month on a Saturday morning. Journaling helps us to see and know ourselves. It is a way to expand on half-formed thoughts — bringing to light parts of ourselves that reside only in our unconscious mind. Once acknowledged we can start to work with those once hidden emotions and beliefs in a new way. In this workshop we will talk about the value and the practice of journaling. We will have several short writing sessions (that won't requiring sharing). Please bring a journal with blank pages and a pen.
Pre-registration is required.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
We meet monthly on the 4th Wednesday from 6:30pm to 8:00pm
A grief support group for bereaved parents, adult siblings, and grandparents. We are the parents whose children have died. We are the siblings whose brothers and sisters no longer walk with us through life. We are the grandparents who have buried grandchildren.
We come together to provide a safe space where grieving families can connect, share our stories, and learn to rebuild our lives. We attend meetings whenever we can and for as long as we find helpful. We share our fers, confusion, anger, guilt, frustrations, emptiness, and feelings of hopelessness, knowing these emotions will be met with compassion and understanding. As we support, comfort and encourage one another, we offer hope and healing. As we confront the deaths of our loved ones, our shared grief brings us to a common ground that transcends differences, building mutual understanding across the boundaries of culture, race, faith, values, abilities, and lifestyle.
Together we celebrate the lives of our children, siblings, and grandchildren, sharing the joys and the heartbreaks as well as the love that will never fade. Together, strengthened by the bonds we create, we offer what we have learned from one another to every bereaved family, no matter how recent or long ago the death.
Please register in advance. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

A four to eight week workshop. Death is an experience that we all will have to face sometime but more often than not, we avoid talking about it. As a society, we tend to consider the subject taboo. In the Facing Death with Life classes we will acknowledge the fact that death is a part of living and we will find out that talking about death doesn’t have to be frightening.
