Many of us have experienced grief at some time in our lives following the death of a loved one. Our grief may cause intense emotional and physical reactions that are characterized by deep sadness and difficulty managing our everyday activities.  Each of us is uniquely individual in the way we experience bereavement.

Unfortunately, our culture hasn’t equipped us for dealing with grief. We tend to want an instant or quick fix. However, grief does not follow a timetable or a set of rules that we may follow.

If you are dealing with the death of a loved one, grief can be a very lonely and isolating experience. Working out what you need to do to help yourself during this time is important.  Our Bereavement Support Group provides a safe place to meet with people who share what you are feeling.  It provides an opportunity to discover methods of easing the pain of your loss while finding the strength and courage to go on with life.  Rev. Kimberly Wadhams has facilitated bereavement groups for six years in Waterbury, Middlebury and Litchfield.

Please call 203-758-6008 with any questions and to secure your place in the group.
