Doing Grief™ Community Healing Project

A community of grievers and healers – empowering grievers to heal in mind, body, and spirit – personally and in community with others. Those of all faiths or no faith who are experiencing loss due to death, broken relationships, illness, injury, aging, or any grief-striking loss are welcome.

When the heart weeps for what it has lost, the spirit laughs for what it has found.
