Each person’s grief is as unique as their fingerprint. But what everyone has in common is that no matter how they grieve, they share a need for their grief to be witnessed.
Our healing circles are a safe and supportive space to walk with each other through these times. Each circle is a blend of sharing and silence, compassion and curiosity. Our agreements ensure acceptance and confidentiality. We honor our own unique paths to healing and respect the choices of others.
Experiencing the loss of a loved one
If you’ve lost a loved one, a healing circle for those in grief is an opportunity to share what’s on your heart and mind, to listen, and be listened to deeply and generously.
Experiencing any kind of loss
The losses we sustain vary greatly. Losing a job, a daily routine, a dream, a hope for a better future, a loving relationship, all these experiences can result in grief and suffering. We often feel disenfranchised from our grief and deprived of our healing if we’re not supported. In this circle, all loss is validated so we may safely grieve.

Grief and the arts
Experiencing any kind of loss or change in circumstance can have a big or small impact on our lives. We may grieve knowingly or unknowingly–in silence or alone. In this healing circle, we use the expressive arts to access what’s on our hearts. We offer a pathway of self-discovery and expression through poetry, free-writing, and drawing–in a space that honors choice, confidentiality, compassion, respect, and deep listening.
