8-Week Bereavement Support Group for Adults Grieving the Death of a Life Partner, Parent, Sibling, Friend or Adult Child - Spring Session

April 16, 2019 to June 25, 2019

A loved one’s death is a life-changing event that triggers a grief journey for the loved ones left behind. The grief journey can include unsettling thoughts and feelings as well as raise questions about meaning and hope. Just as death is a natural part of life, experiencing grief and actively mourning is a natural and healthy part of life.

This 8-Week bereavement support group at Heart House Hospice includes:

   – A safe space to share your story of loss and hear others’ stories of loss in a mutually supportive environment

   – Education about themes in grief using Dr. Alan Wolfelt’s model, current grief research, self-care and compassion, research on resilience, mindfulness meditation

   – Rituals, meditations, and readings

Participation in groups requires an interview and an 8-week commitment to attend each session. No new members will be able to join the group after week 2.

8-Week Social Walking Group for People in Grief

May 8, 2019 to June 26, 2019

Orientation Evening: Wednesday, May 8, 2019 ~ 6 pm – 7 pm
The first evening will be in-person at Heart House Hospice (1-855 Matheson Blvd. E., Mississauga) for registration, logistics, and to gather ideas in how to make this project helpful for people in grief.

Wednesday Walking Evenings: May 15, 22, 29, June 5, 12, 19, & 26 ~ 6 pm – 7 pm
For the next seven dates, participants will meet at a local park for a one-hour walk together in nature with trained volunteer facilitators followed by an opportunity to socialize over coffee.

Grief can highlight a need to connect with others who have grieved and practice self-care of body, mind and spirit. Current research indicates that “exposure to green space significantly correlates to a positive effect on well-being.” (Psychology Today, “Nature Therapy”, August 2016). This program offers social connection for people in grief while engaging in the self-care practice of walking in nature.
