Moving through Darkness to Light
The holiday season can remind us of losses both old and new– activating grief that can feel profound and overwhelming.
Grief is the natural response to profound loss, and we each experience and express our grief differently.
Society can encourage us to “get over it and get on with life,” which can lead to further pain and isolation.
It can help to talk in a warm, supportive, and confidential environment with others who have experienced losses.
Join us and experience the benefits of a group:
- Healing – Talking with others about a loss or trauma—rather than being silent—can promote better health, emotionally and physically
- Hope – Seeing that others have survived a loss and learned ways to cope can help us feel more hopeful that we, too, will be okay
- Practical Information – In addition to the emotional toll, life after a loss can pose new tasks or challenges. Other group members often have practical advice
