Guest Speaker: Lynn Jaffee is a free-lance writer and retired acupuncturist. Five years ago she lost her adult son Andrew to cancer. Lynn continues to explore aspects of that loss through her writing and speaking. In 2021 she published the book Love Pain, which combines her writing with her son’s to tell a story of loss, resilience and survival.

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 online the first and third Thursdays of each 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.
