Walking Through Grief and Healing is a bereavement support group for those who’ve lost a loved one and would benefit from a supportive instrumental grief program. As humans we experience grief in many different ways. Instrumental grief is a form of grieving that can occupy our thoughts more so than our emotions. Many people experiencing grief can benefit from an experiential way of processing loss through action and reflection versus discussion or traditional talk therapy. This walking group is designed to give grieving family and friends the opportunity to spend time in nature for a little mindfulness and physical activity.
Each session will start with a brief reading and Beacon Hospice bereavement coordinator(s) will be available to check in throughout.
