Grief is not a problem to be solved, not a condition to be medicated, but a deep encounter with an essential experience of being human.

– Francis Weller

Join us, as we navigate this essential human experience together. 

10-Step Program

Ten weeks. Ten meetings.

Small groups. Heart-centered process work. Together.

Good Grief Network provides social and emotional support to people who feel overwhelmed about the state of the world. 

Our unique 10-Step Program helps individuals build personal resilience and empowerment and strengthen community ties. Using embodiment exercises, journaling, and group sharing, we create brave and grounded spaces where people can collectively metabolize their heavy feelings.

Our distinct and decentralized 10-Step meetings also provide fertile ground for emergent and innovative visioning. As we connect with community, share vulnerability, and process our heavy emotions, we are able to envision new paradigms, access our unique gifts, and reorient our lives toward action at a time when action is essential.

Digital 10-Step Meetings

Stay safe and join us online.

We are now hosting 10-Step meetings on Zoom. These digital meetings are two hours long and follow the same format as our in-person meetings, but allow for a wider range of participation from folks across different continents and time zones.

What folks say about facilitating the 10-Steps…

JOSH S.

The sacred space of the Good Grief circle is where I began to remember how to listen for my own voice and trust my power, as I learned how to hold space for the yearnings, fears and sorrows, and deep wounds of others. It is the only community where I have felt truly safe to face the immense trauma that has rooted into our way of life, and into my own heart, mind, and body.

ABBEY K.

This was my second time facilitating these groups and my third time experiencing it and every time I learn more about myself, I learn new resources and ideas, and my gratitude cup is overflowing right now. You have really laid the foundation for people to process their grief and feelings in a way that sparks connection, growth and understanding.
