Healing Through Movement & Music
Healing Through Movement and Music is a program where gentle movement and music are used to help women express and work through their grief from the death of a loved one (human and/or animal).
The Child Loss Grief Group program will not cure your grief.  However, it is designed to add some focus to your grief work.  It may lead to greater self-knowledge, strength and renewal.  Hopefully, you will find our evenings a safe place to listen, share and reflect on your life. 
In today’s society in the cycle of human development, it is normal and natural to lose your parents when you yourself are an adult.  The death of a parent is the single most common form of bereavement for adults.  Depending on their ages and on yours, death is usually more or less expected.  In contrast to the death of a child, it is consistent with the laws of nature.  In contrast to the death of a spouse, it usually does not deprive us of our primary sources of companionship and identity.  And in contrast to the loss of a brother or sister, it is usually less threatening to us personally.

​Nevertheless, the death of a parent is not insignificant.  Despite your expectations and those of society to the contrary, the loss of your parent(s) has profound implications for you.  Although you may be an “adult child”, you are still the child of your parents, and this role will determine a number of your issues in whatever grief you experience over their deaths.
The Adolescent Grief Support Group will not cure your grief.  However, it is designed to add some focus to the grief you are experiencing.  It may lead to greater self-knowledge, strength and renewal.  It will also provide you with the opportunity to be with others your age who have lost a loved one. This program was designed specifically with Adolescents and Youths in mind and is currently partnered with the SchoolsPlus Program provided by the Cape Breton Victoria Regional School Board.
The Spousal Loss Grief Group program will not cure your grief.  However, it is designed to add some focus to your grief work.  It may lead to greater self-knowledge, strength and renewal.  Hopefully, you will find our evenings a safe place to listen, share and reflect on your life.
