Walking Through Grief Support Group (FULL)

October 14, 2023

This session is full. Please contact us at 250-519-3040 or if you would like to be waitlisted for a future session. 

The Walking Through Grief Support Group offered by Victoria Hospice Bereavement Services is an eight-week walking support group open to all adults in the Greater Victoria community who are bereaved after the death of someone important in their life.

While walking at a relaxed pace in the area near the Victoria Hospice Bereavement Services Community Support Centre, with the facilitation of a Victoria Hospice Bereavement Counsellor and Bereavement Volunteer, this support group is a way to explore your grief through the movement of walking, being outdoors in nature, and by sharing with and supporting other grievers.

Every Saturday from October 14 to December 9 (no session November 11) 

10:30 am to approximately 12 pm. The first session will be longer running from 10:15 am to 12:30 pm.                              

Walks will begin at the Community Support Centre at 102-4450 Chatterton Way

Limited number of registered participants (adults) who are bereaved following the loss of someone important in their life. Participants will be required to sign a self-declaration form stating they are capable of walking for an hour and have checked in with their doctor if needed.

Each session will open and close with participants gathering in a circle with a brief discussion round. In between, participants will head out on an approximately hour-long walk.

A pre-group intake conversation with a counsellor may be required to discuss your needs, answer any questions you may have, and determine whether the group is a good fit for you at this time.

There is a group fee of $70, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds; bursaries to cover this cost, in part or in full, are available.

To register or for further questions, please call Bereavement Services at 250-519-3040 or email
