Guest Speaker: Mark Flaten will speak on “Grieving for a Brother.” Mark grew up in a small Wisconsin town with his parents who had five boys. He has a Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. Mark spent the last 20 years of his career as a licensed marriage and family therapist in private practice in Golden Valley, until his retirement a few years ago. He has worked extensively with grieving people throughout his professional career. Mark has 3 grandchildren and loves to travel.

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.
