As a new healing group, we are providing a place for people in our community to share common concerns and emotional support. Our mission is to heal in a safe, non-judgmental environment and deal with the issues ranging from grief, death & dying to healing ourselves in healthy ways while co-creating strong community bonds.

We just need a little help to realize that "Life is Gold" and that we need healing, coping and education, especially if you have experienced the loss of a loved one or you are a survivor of a suicide loss. Please join us!

Check out the calendar to see what's going on this month!

The Community Healing Circle presents

"A Mythological Guide to Grief Work: The Lindworm"
with guest speaker Kim Bateman

Wednesday, February 25th, 6:30 - 8:30pm

Participants will explore the richly complex world of bereavement as expressed in a Celtic folktale, “The Lindworm.” After the initial shock, pain and immobilization that loss presents, we are often left in a state of chronic despair. The familiar hook upon which we have hung our identity is gone and the future can look bleak. According to mythology, we do have to say good-bye to our loved ones, but at the same time, we are being offered a chance to say hello to a different type of relationship. Still loving, and the creative expression of that bond, is the focus of this interactive presentation.
