This group is a safe, non-professional fellowship and learning space for healing and renewal designed to meet the needs of individuals who are dealing with the loss of a loved one.
It is open to all those who are grieving — because of death, divorce or separation.
While the grief associated with death and divorce are unique, both experiences catapult us into a period of suffering and loneliness. We find ourselves lost and forced to let go of a familiar identity. We are charged with picking up the pieces, letting things go and creating space for a new life. I call this difficult “in-between” stage a dark night of the soul or Bardō.
I’ve learned that when we open up to others who have grief in common and make a daily commitment to a mindful meditation practice, we can transform our suffering and loss into a deeper awareness of love.
Next Session: September 2021 (Dates TBD)

I am very grateful to have found this space and for the care with which you assembled our tasks and activities. It allowed me a place to talk about the anguish part of existence, rather than tucking it away and tending to the activities of daily living. I have been left with much to reflect on, new practices and strategies to incorporate.” (Leah, Age 64)

Being part of a group which Raquel expertly and sensitively facilitated was so valuable in helping me see through my grief and losses in such a way that increased my capacity to exercise self-care, kindness and self-compassion, whilst as the same time respecting the suffering I was in.” (Greg, Age 60)
