While no one can guarantee a “Safe Space” every human who shows up to these circles is agreeing to offer the utmost respect and honor to one another. We are all coming from different backgrounds, cultures and lived experiences. This is a space to share our stories to be seen and heard in our grief. We do not hold the agenda of fixing or changing someone else's experience.  We show up in love, respect and honor for each other.  ALL Grief and Loss are welcome in this circle. 

*These circles are not meant to be therapy, We are not licensed counselors or therapists. If you feel you need additional support please be sure to arrange that for yourself.

Exchange: We are offering these circles on a sliding scale between $10-25CAD.  If this price range is not within your reach please email and let us know, we would be happy to work out a different arrangement, no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. If you have the means and would like to support others in attending these circles who might not afford them please feel free to contact us to make a donation.  This is COMMUNITY CARE.

Facilitated by: Willow Meili, Co-Founder of The Grief Well, Grief Companion, EOL Doula, Facilitator of tender hearted spaces and Hospice Volunteer. Willow began facilitating Community Grief circles at the beginning of the global pandemic and has a passion for creating soft spaces held with fierce compassion for humans who are in the throes of grief.  Willow understands the power of witness and offers a space that is welcoming, warm and humanizing. Willow believes that being in relationship with our grief has the potential to shift our experiences of a dominant culture that has us ignore, diminish, and hide our grief if it acknowledges it at all. This is a lovingly held space where all loss is acknowledged and held.We will meet IN PERSON at The McTavish Center for the Arts.
