Join other adults to learn tips and tools for finding enjoyment and minimizing the challenges while living with chronic physical illness. Topics may include communicating with healthcare providers, relationships with family and friends, spiritual resources for healing, and living well in times of uncertainty and hardship. The group facilitator will encourage the process of sharing by providing a space for everyone to explore and learn from members of the group.

The experience of grieving always feels like visiting a foreign place, feeling disoriented by the new reality of life without the person we loved. COVID-19 has taken away our ability to grieve in community.  

Let’s come together virtually (via Zoom) to learn alternative ways to mourn and grieve while we gain comfort from being together. 

The evening will include wisdom from a rabbi, a grief counselor, and a community member grieving a new death.  We will use music, prayer, poems, and pictures to honor the loved ones who have died and our own grief.
