Compassionate Community Initiative

Welcome

The Grief Well aims to create safe and accessible spaces for people to to bring grief out of the shadows, share their sorrow in a circle of compassionate community to be witnessed and normalized.  Through this coming together, we are given the opportunity to turn toward and remember our common human experience.  While our losses may be different, our experiences unique, we soon learn that we can find ourselves in one another and that connection brings us together.  The more we engage with grief and bring it into presence, the more it has the space to change within us, ebbing and flowing like the waves.  We learn how to ride the current as we feel more resourced and normalized in our experience within ourselves and in community. 

 

The heart that breaks open can contain the whole universe.
