These small, supportive groups are for anyone dealing with the grief that arises with the loss of a loved one or other difficult transitions.
The Living with Loss Circle provides a safe environment to share feelings of sorrow, loneliness, and regret while learning to live with greater peace and hope.
This Circle is a unique approach that draws upon the “circle of trust” which helps transform moments of suffering into a larger version of wellbeing.
This supportive and compassionate offering is based in contemplative practices such as mindfulness, meditation, deep listening, and heart-full reflection.
Companionship: We will journey together down this path of mystery, anger, and sadness, to gain a clearer perspective of life as it is for us right at this moment. As we acknowledge what is felt and what is needed, we will relax into the mutual support and respect of fellow travelers.
Authentic Support: Trusting that everyone has the right to be heard, and that everyone has the right to sit in quiet stillness, we will listen deeply to one another without advice-giving or trying to “fix” the situation. Together we will cultivate a compassionate space to help us open into deeper insight and grace, and to lean courageously into our inner wisdom.
Healing Journey: Throughout these eight gatherings we’ll discover a growing steadiness and peace of heart and mind while traversing this rocky terrain called loss. Our stories will be witnessed, honored, and protected. We will carry with us the supportive aids of mindfulness, wisdom, compassion, and friendship so valuable to our healing and personal growth.
Come as you are. Anyone living with recent or past loss is welcome.
