COMMUNITY GRIEF GATHERINGS - Sunday 15 May and June 12

Community Grief Gatherings are based on the recognition that over the ages and across cultures, traditions around the world have always seen and experienced grief as a communal event. In western society, the pain of loss lingers for many people largely due to there being no space for it to be honoured beyond the context of a funeral and wake. The Grief Centre now offers access to simple, non-sectarian Grief Gatherings, that are held in a safe and welcoming place, as a powerful way to lift the heartache of grief while building community connection. The City of Stirling recently approved a Community Collaborations Grant to fund two Grief Gatherings in Stirling Hubs in 2022. For more information about the Gatherings or to stay in touch about further dates for our 2022 Program please send your inquiry below.
