8-Week Meditation for Grief Online Group Coaching (Winter 2018)

Thursdays, Nov. 29, 2018 - Jan. 17, 2019 from 7:00 - 8:00 PM EST


Each week during the eight-week program you will join the group via telephone or computer using Zoom, a free, virtual conference call program. If you have a WebCam, or connect via smart phone, you will have the opportunity to turn your camera on and be seen, or keep it off and remain anonymous. If you have a spotty Internet connection or are traveling, you can join by telephone.

If you are going to miss a week or two, each session will be recorded and posted within a couple of days. Only the audio (not the video) will be available to protect our privacy, and it will only be made available to people who join this group.

While the calls will not start until the week after Thanksgiving, you will have instant access to the Meditation for Grief Course & Community Forum, so you can start practicing these helpful, healing tools right now. You will also be able to post questions and observations, and receive Heather's support in the Community Forum.
