If someone close to you has died, then your life probably looks a little different now than how you imagined it would. Grief as a young adult can be lonely and isolating and really hard to talk about amongst your peers. That’s why we’re building a space where we can work through it candidly: no stigma, no qualms, no judgement.

Good Grief Support Group is a 6-week offering of modern healing tools for young people navigating grief and loss.

Our innovative approach includes a weekly community support group, movement release classes, private breathwork sessions and exciting guest workshops.

In our time together, we navigate grief and loss through the framework of the chakra system of energy in our body. Each week focuses on a different energy centre, and its corresponding physical, mental and emotional threads.

What do you mean when you say ‘work group’?

We are calling this a ‘work-group’ because healing requires you to be active, engaged and present in this process. You will get the most out of this group by showing up, staying accountable and carving out the time and space to dive in. 

 

This is a big time commitment, what if I can’t make it one week?

We understand that we all have busy schedules and multiple commitments outside of grief. While only our Sunday sessions are mandatory, we encourage you to attend as many of the offerings live as you can but if you can’t, we will send recordings.

 

I’ve experienced grief, but not related to death. Can I still join this work-group?

Grief takes many forms and especially in 2020 is a feeling that everyone can relate to. This particular group is limited to young people who have experienced the death of a loved one.

 

While creating Good Grief, we’ve learned about the universality of emotions that accompany grief and we have plans for more offerings that serve a wider audience. Please join our mailing list to receive updates on upcoming offerings.

 

This is cool, but I’m bad at meditation and I don’t know what breathwork is?

There is no prior experience in meditation, breathwork or mindfulness needed to join this group. We make great effort to be accessible in our offerings so they are suitable for all levels. All experiences are guided so the only prerequisite is an open-mind.  
You can learn more about the specific breathwork technique Aliya facilitates 

 

Is this an alternative to therapy or traditional grief support?

We are not mental health professionals and this is not an alternative to traditional therapy. If you are experiencing mental health challenges like serious depression or anxiety, or feel like you may hurt yourself or hurt others, we encourage you to seek professional support.

I’m interested in this, but I have some questions, who can I talk to?

We’d love to chat more. You can send an email and we will answer any questions or set up an info call.
