Description: In this follow up to our previous session, we offer a space to share grief experiences. Participants are encouraged to share stories and experiences if they feel comfortable doing so. The facilitator will ask general questions to get conversations started. If you would like to honor a person who has died, speak on the losses that you have experienced, or support others, this is the place! We aim to build a safe space to honor loss, integrate grief, and support one and other. This is also a great time to share questions or comments that you may have from session one. We want to hear from you! What have you learned about grief, what do you want others to know? Resources for grief support will also be shared.
