This drop in style group is for students who have experienced grief and loss due to the death of a loved one. The group is facilitated by Marybeth from McMaster Open Circle and Simone (counsellor) from the Student Wellness Centre, and it is open to all students. This group will provide a safe and confidential space for sharing experiences of grief while respecting each other’s questions, feelings, viewpoints, and/or spirituality as it relates to each person’s healing process. This group will include reflective sharing and inquiry, expressive arts, mindfulness and self compassion based exercises. Please contact Marybeth for the WebEx meeting link. When emailing, please provide your name, address of where you will be located at time of meeting and phone number in case of emergency. Please contact us through a McMaster email.
This group will be held once monthly on Thursday mornings from 9:30 – 11:00am. Although you don’t need to register, you must attend the entire duration of the session to avoid any disruption to the group and so we can support the group best.
