    An eight week seminar for adult survivors coping with the death of a losing a loved one is designed to provide a supportive environment in which group members can understand the impact grief has on their lives, learn ways to cope with the loss and begin to look toward the future with purpose and meaning, all of which take time. During the workshop participants will receive a ninety-page manual that contains resources to assist in the grief journey. Included in the manual are numerous tools that participants can begin using immediately and in the days to come. Beginning Again is offered each Spring and Fall.
