Mindfulness, Meditation and Meaning

Grief is often compared to waves. When we are experiencing loss, the grief waves can impact us emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. Just like the ocean, these waves ebb and flow, and in between, we can find moments of balance. This 8-week grief support workshop will focus on practicing meditation, mindfulness, guided imagery, self-care tools and journaling in combination with confidential discussion to help you find some balance in the midst of your grief. Space is limited. A short phone assessment is required before registration is complete.
