    Dreams or goals help bring meaning and purpose to our lives. However, when people face the death of someone close to them it can often halt those dreams. If life does not follow the path we expect it is often painful. It can be hard to go on when our special someone is no longer present.
    Adjusting to life after a significant death can feel insurmountable. We are here to tell you, you can feel good again and you can look towards the future.

  • Movie Night: Manchester by the Sea
    Wednesday, August 23, 2017 : 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM

    Film is an amazing medium and catalyst which can inspire a wide range of emotions. Movies can offer hope, provide role models or anti-role models and reframe life situations. Film can open up a way to safely discuss thoughts and feelings pertaining to loss. Viewing a movie that touches on things that connect to our own lives can help us see our own situations more clearly. Watching film in a mindful way in the company of others who share the common thread of loss can help us to connect our own feelings in a more concrete way.
