New Bereavement Group: Healing Practices for Grief

Are you looking for help with your grief? Perhaps you want to learn new ways to express your grief and support your healing.  Victoria Hospice is pleased to offer a counsellor-led group in the New Year that may interest you. 

In this group you will have the opportunity to learn about and practice a variety of tools and techniques that can help with some of the thoughts and feelings commonly associated with grief. Each week will have a distinct focus, such as journaling, relaxation strategies, collage, and (weather permitting) a mindfulness walk. 

Please see below for program details.


  • Six Saturdays from January 13 – February 17 inclusive
  • 2:00pm – 4:00pm (except the first session which will run 1:30pm – 4:00pm)
