Opening to Grief
Next session: Monday, April 22, 2024 | 2:00pm-3:00pm


Mondays,  April 8, 22, May 13, June 10, 24, July 8 (6-part series)

Join others in a safe space where you can remember a person, a pet, a marriage, a job, or any other loss you may have experienced in your life. Despite what our culture teaches us, grief is not something that goes away over time. We grow around our grief. Grief Educator and facilitator, Laura Markey Monroe will lead those wanting to find a space to remember what they have lost. Each week's meeting will include readings on grief and provide an open environment for sharing. It is also acceptable to simply listen in that space. Your grief journey is your own and how you approach it is up to you. Writing prompts will be offered as suggestions for sharing.  A notebook or journal is recommended.
