Understanding your Grief - Next Start Date:

31 March - 21 April 2020 | 2 April - 23 April 2020

Each person’s grief is unique. While you may share some commonalities in your experiences, no one will ever grieve like you do but the shared experience gently bears witness to the process of reconciling the reality of learning to live without the presence of a loved one. It is no longer ‘just me’ but rather ‘we.’ It is this revelation which pushes you to connect, support and find a new compassion you never knew existed.

(Group 1) March 31 - April 21 2020
(Group 2) April 2 - April 23 2020
(Group 1) 9 - 11:30 am
(Group 2) 6 - 8:00 pm
Length: 4 weeks 

Cost: $30 (+ GST) plus $10/session donation to local charity chosen by group
