SUPPORT GROUPS FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS
Blue Highways: Alternative Path To Grief: A four-week group for adults at least 12 months out from the loss of a loved one. Processing grief and emotions can be much more than “just talk” when we lower our adult barriers and release the need to be in control. This experiential group incorporates music and mindfulness, art activities and sharing. Call 912.303.9442 for next dates and more information.
A Life, A Loss, A Story: Unpacking Your Grief, One Story At A Time: A four-session interactive workshop for those who are at least 12 months out from the loss of a loved one. Participants have the opportunity to write and talk about their own loss, their journeys, and their future. Because each participant has experienced a profound loss, they will be able to understand, value and support each others’ grief journey. Registration is limited to 7. Call 912.303.9442 for next dates and to pre-register.
Spouse/Life Partner Support Group: A weekly opportunity to be with others who are on the unique journey of grief because their life mate has died. “Who am I apart from my spouse?’ “How do I navigate all of the legal matters?” “I don’t think my friends understand this loss.” Meets Thursday mornings from 11:00 a.m. to noon.
