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.
