A: Grief is a natural and universal response to loss. People of all faiths and those who are unsure of what they believe are welcome to participate in any of our groups.
A: In Elizabeth Kubler-Ross’ book, On Death and Dying, she outlines five stages commonly experienced by dying patients. The book was not written for those who are grieving a loss. While some of the thing she writes may relate to grief, the one reading must keep in mind that the book was not written for mourners.
We believe there is no right or wrong way to do grief. Your journey is your journey, and no one experiences it in the same way. We believe:
- Grief is a normal reaction to death
- The duration and intensity of grief are unique to each person, adult and child
- Everyone has a capacity to heal
