We are all grief stricken at times in our lives. The loss of loved ones, a job, or an accident, a major change in life, even dealing with our identity can cause us to grieve. As unique as we are—and though we all grieve differently—it is often suggested that we do so with others who can support our journey, understand us, and help guide us through these challenging times.
We can’t always control what happens in life, or get to choose the outcome. However, we can choose how we respond to the experiences that throw us off our course. This programme is designed to help us cope with loss—of any kind. This six-week series help you find coping strategies to manoeuvre difficult times, and provide you with some support and hope you might need along the way.
We share a lot. We find solace in silence and meditation. And we encourage the expression of ourselves through artistic and creative avenues. We listen. At times we sing. We often give hugs! We are here to support, and to help you through these difficult times. Please join us!
