Grief Support Group

This ten week grief processing and support group will focus on issues connected with the experience of grief and loss. It is ideal for women who previously benefited from Riseup Society Alberta services and possibly participated in  Phase I “Understanding Domestic Abuse in Intimate Partnerships” and/or Phase II “Healing and Recovery from the Impact of Intimate Partner Abuse Support Groups. Grief Processing Support Group builds on the foundation of Phase I and II groups. With its emphasis on deeper healing and growth, the Grief Processing Support Group is intended to further empower recovering women by providing a safe and supportive environment where they can gain advanced knowledge and skills to process in more holistic ways their profound and often compounded experiences of grief which will allow them to move more easily from brokenness to physical, psychological and spiritual wholeness.

Knitting Support Group

‘The physical pain I was experiencing was my body’s way of getting my attention, and it wouldn’t go away until I could let go of the anger and fear that I still carried from the chaotic events that I had thought to be safely in the past.’

~Excerpt from ‘Just Keep Knitting’: A journey of healing through forgiveness, faith, and fibre by Lonna Cunningham

Join us at the knitting support group to discuss how to let go of anger and fear. No previous knitting experience necessary.
