Ten Essentials Grief Hike
Join us 3/4 and 3/19 for a socially distanced group nature hike for adults (18+) to explore your grief while sharing support and encouragement with others. During the hike, you will also be introduced to the “Ten Essentials,” to assist with a healthy grief process (created by Alive’s grief counselor, Dianne Castellano). Register below.

Join us 3/7 for a new virtual offering for adults experiencing complicated bereavement. This group uses the Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Group Traumatic Episode Protocol (G-TEP). Pre-screening is required. Register below.
SoulCollage® is an expressive arts process that uses the power of images to encourage self-discovery. Each month on the second Wednesday (3/9) we will work on building and adding to our incredible deck of cards and deepening our understanding of ourselves through their use. Your guide through this process is Alive’s grief counselor and trained SoulCollage® Facilitator Terri Kuberski. Register below.
