Guest Speaker: Ellen Hufschmidt will speak on “A Gentle Practice for Tough Times”. Ellen has been a non-denominational Chaplain for 25 years, a Hospice Grief Counselor for 10 years, and a Ritual and Ceremonialist for 35 years. She is also a Reiki Master Healer and a Trained Process Worker. She lives in South Minneapolis and sees clients part-time. She is the author of two books.

This grief group is for secular people who have experienced a recent or not-so-recent loss. For those who want a place to process that loss and their on-going grief. A place to remember a loved one and to express difficult emotions — or a place to process “ambiguous” grief. A place to share with and support others in a life riven with grief.

Currently, we meet on-line on the first and third Thursdays of the month.

This is a peer-led group for people with no belief in a higher power or consciousness and for those who have no belief in an afterlife. We offer no professional grief counseling. Participants are encouraged to speak to their own loss and share their current challenges with grief.

This event is sponsored by HumanistsMN and First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis, a humanist congregation. Please consider supporting one or both of these associations to help us cover our costs and build the humanist movement. Click on the embedded links above to donate or join.
