Grief + Renewal

Is a Grief Support group for me? Before you decide, hear these comments:

“I found listening to others who have gone through this very helpful.”

“I guess I just needed to talk.”

“Listening to someone else’s story reassured me what I’m feeling is normal.”

By offering a safe, relaxed, no-pressure environment, St.Timothy’s Grief & Renewal Group allows individuals who have suffered a loss an opportunity to gather with others who share common concerns or experiences. Because grief has no timeline, some attending have experienced a recent loss, while for others it has been years. And while no one’s grief is alike, the support and insight one gains from those who found themselves in similar circumstances is often helpful. Do we tear up? Sometimes. Do we laugh? Most times. The intent is not therapy but restorative. Grieving is not forgetting your loved one but rather, learning to do so more effectively. Sometimes, we find the occasional quiet support is just what we need. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Wava Shirbroun at 2ongoldenpond@gmail.com.

The link to the session is on Sunday, March 21 at 1 pm (it will be a monthly thing, so the date will likely change). Here is the live link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87307363304
