Drop-In Grief Support Groups
Please join Hospice Austin for these free Drop-In Bereavement Groups this month.
Dealing with Difficult Emotions
Grieving can bring with it some tough emotional states – sadness, depression, anxiety, guilt, anger and more. We will have a discussion on ways to ride the waves of emotion. Also, you will have an opportunity to share what you have learned in your grief journey about dealing with these emotions or what you find especially challenging about them.

Grief: A Demanding and Uninvited Guest
Grief is a demanding house guest. It makes a mess, leaving dirty dishes for you to wash, clothes on the floor, and your refrigerator without food. It keeps long and strange hours causing you to have disrupted or not enough sleep. It lacks social skills, interrupting you when you are on the phone or trying to have a friend over for lunch. In this webinar you’ll discover how embracing your grief can lead to a deeper spiritual connection, greater compassion for yourself and others, and experience a new wholeness as you learn how to integrate your loss into daily living.
— Wednesday, March 13: 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
