Understanding and coping with grief
It is widely held that there are "stages" of grief. And, that we travel through these stages, one at a time, in a progressive order until our grieving is "complete".
Our experience with loss tells a different story. One that's totally unique. In other words, your grief, and the way you grieve -- and what you grieve are unique to you.
Our group explores the depths of the grieving process and sheds light on the questions we have about how to grieve, why we grieve, and how to move forward (is it even okay to move forward?).
This group provides answers to to some of the questions you might be afraid to ask and is a safe place to express what you are going through.

Give Yourself Time
Let your heart not your head determine how you feel. Everyone grieves differently and at their own pace.
Take Care of Yourself
Rest, Exercise, & Diet - Grief can leave you physically exhausted. It is important to take care of yourself and give yourself the extra strength you need.
Crying is just one expression of grief. There is a saying, “What soap is for the body, tears are for the soul”. Tears are not a sign of weakness. If you feel like crying, let your tears flow.
Grief can be very isolating. Whether you speak to someone individually or join a grief support group, reach out and find people who know how to listen. This can help normalize the myriad of feelings you are experiencing.
Be Gentle With Yourself
It may be 5 days, 5 months, 5 years or longer since your loved one died, and you may still experience moments of grief so intense they take you by surprise. While these grief bursts may occur from time to time, you will continue to heal. Be gentle and patient with yourself as you move forward into a full and meaningful life.
