Peer Trainings

Effective facilitators come to realize that it is about creating “sacred space” in the group so that each person’s story can be non-judgmentally received. Facilitators help to create a mutual bond between the group members, help them to “trust the process” in being able to find meaning in their loss.

Build Memories to Carry With You
You will never forget, get over it, or “put it behind you and get on with life”
That’s not what healing looks like. Instead, even as you learn to let go of what can no longer be, you create memories and stories that you take with you for the rest of your life. You carry that person, their love and who you became because they lived. The greatest memorial you can build to a person who dies is to live your life now as fully as possible, enriched by their memory.
