 Facing the Mourning

4-Session Support Group

An interactive support group designed to help with the grieving process by using visual and thought-provoking tools. During these four sessions, the participants share their story, build memorials, compose letters, write in journals and develop goals with milestones. Designed for all types of losses, individuals and family members.

Join a Monthly Grief Support Group

What is a Support Group at HeartLight Center?

Anyone who has experienced a death-loss, and is at least of 18 years of age, is invited to attend an open support group at HeartLight Center. Open support groups allow participants to attend as often or as little as needed and attendance is not taken.

Groups at HeartLight are led by trained, peer facilitators. Facilitators will open group with agreed upon expectations and then participants are invited to introduce themselves and share as much, or as little, as feels comfortable. Some facilitators will offer a reading or prompt during group, but groups do not have a set topic, which allows participants to ask questions and talk about topics that are meaningful to them. We invite you to attend group when it feels best for you, regardless of when your loss occurred.

HeartLight Center kindly requests that you register for in-person groups prior to attendance.  Online registration will close 24-hours prior to group.  Please contact us at [email protected] with questions or for more information.

Sudden & Traumatic Loss Support Group

A group for adult individuals navigating the complexities of sudden, traumatic, and unexpected loss. Join a supportive environment where others understand grief associated with a death loss in which accident, medical circumstances, substance use/abuse, or violent events were part of the life/death narrative. We will meet on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 4:30pm starting in January, 2024.

Loss of Spouse/Partner Support Group

An ongoing support and educational group for people who have experienced the death of a spouse, partner or significant other. If your loss is recent or years ago, you are welcome to spend an evening with others who are on a similar journey. Meets on the 1st Monday of the month at 5:30pm.

LGBTQ+ Grief Support Group

An ongoing support group for individuals who identify in the LGBTQ+ community who are grieving the death of a loved one – a friend, family member, or member of a found family. Meets on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 5:30pm at the UrbanMama505 Kombuchery.

Comfort Food Dinner

in partnership with Bosque Trails

Come to a cozy environment and leave the dishes and worries about cooking at home. We will serve comforting food and create a space for sharing experiences, meals, and beverages. This gathering is open to all adults (18+) who have experienced the loss of a loved one – regardless of the circumstances or relationship – or are navigating serious illness and anticipatory grief. While bringing a dish is not required or expected, you are welcome to contribute if it feeds your wellbeing. Through the act of sharing a meal, we aim to nourish both our bodies and hearts with mutual support.
*Please note any dietary restrictions or food allergies in your RSVP.
