Peer Led Support Groups & Workshops

The stories speak the truth. The stories create hope. The stories create healing.

Often times in order for people to continue to move forward on their grief journey, they feel there is more to tell of their story. An initial support group after their loss may not have been enough. Attending a six or eight week Peer Led support group allows those who wish to continue to work through their grief, an opportunity to learn to adjust to an environment in which their loved one is missing. The creation of new meaning and purpose in life requires that mourners “re-story” their lives. Essentially, the peers or “Hope Representatives” are compassionate listeners, who honor and affirm their truths. The fact that the peers have attended to their own stories of loss allows them to open their hearts and connect to other people’s stories. We heal ourselves as we tell our tale. There is power in the story.

“You will lose someone you can’t live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly… that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”
