This site is for bereaved and caregivers anticipating loss.

Navigating Grief and change after loss is easier when surrounded with others who care and know what you are going through. Our support groups mix education, discussion and optional online writing community for making a positive transition through and after loss. Facilitated by Joan H., Navigating Grief founder and widow. Come as you are. Your journey of healing starts here.

Best suited for people seeking comfort, support and wanting to do "something" about their grief. (I know even getting here can be a great beginning!) Compassion, care and support come first. Activities may include reflection, memory projects, problem solving, promoting self care and other life change support. The idea is to learn to move through the grief and honor your loved one. Loss is forever; the pain of grief doesn't have to be.

Start with any of the Tear Soup Meetups (second Sunday for bereaved; fourth Sunday for caregivers). Watch for seasonal workshops and events.

Now open... The Navigating Grief Discover-Create-Share Center near  downtown Olympia. You are welcome to visit. Please call 360.534.0203 to arrange your personal tour.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
