Grief Process Group

Gathering in the shared experience of living with and sensing what we have lost.

We invite members of the student community into a relational processing of their grief; to join alongside one another in the shared experience of living with and making meaning of what we have lost.

This Grief Process Group begins January 19th
and will run every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month, through the end of the school year.

3:30 to 4:45pm

Locations vary on campus…contact us for the next group location
