    Prospective Member Zoom Call:

    Once you indicate interest, a brief introductory call will be scheduled to make contact, determine if you are in a place to do this work and see if the group would be a good fit for where you are in your grief journey.

    Aftercare Group Email:

    Following each group, an email will go out to the group with suggestions for self-care to help process and integrate the content of the group.

    The Container

    This grief support group is intended to be a safe, supportive and non-judgmental space to be held and witnessed by each group member. Grief work is hard work and takes tremendous courage, vulnerability and compassion for one’s suffering. The purpose of this group is not therapy. I highly encourage all group members to be under the care of an individual therapist to provide additional support and further processing.

    I will serve as a facilitator and guide, holding the container, not as your therapist. I will draw upon my professional experiences and my experiences as a fellow co-journer.

    The Invitation

    “Grief work offers us a trail leading back to the vitality that is our birthright. When we fully honor our many losses, our lives become more fully able to embody the wild joy that aches to leap from our hearts into the shimmering world.”

    – Francis Weller

    Holding Space: An 8-Week BIPOC Grief Support Group

    Grief and loss has touched all of our lives in intense and unexpected ways in the wake of the pandemic: the death of a parent, a partner, a child, a marriage, a way of life, a dream; the suicide of a friend, family member or beloved figure; chronic pain; addiction; reminders of fractured childhoods and dysfunctional relationships; and the collective trauma of racism, social unrest and a global pandemic. We all share stories of loss and together we can hold, integrate and release.

    This grief support group is for Black, Indigenous and People of Color to feel safe and comfortable around how their grief and coping is informed by their families, cultures and communities.
