Walking through grief support group
February 3, 2024 at 10:15 am - 12:00 pm
The Walking Through Grief Support Group is an 8-week 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 Chatterton Way 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.
When: Saturdays, 10:30 am to approximately 12 pm from February 3 to March 23, 2024. (The first session will be longer, running from 10:15 am to 12:30 pm)
Where: Walks will begin at the Community Support Centre at 102-4450 Chatterton Way
Who: 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.
Sessions: 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. Except for inclement weather, sessions will run rain or shine.
How: 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.
Fee: here 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.
