Guest Speaker: Rox Sadovsky will speak on Writing Together through Grief. Roxanne Sadovsky, MA, MFA, is a Twin Cities freelance writer, teacher, and therapist. At 19, she fled her hometown in LA to study writing and psychology at the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington (1993). She later earned her master’s in counseling psychology from Antioch University Seattle (1999) followed by an MFA in creative nonfiction from the University of Minnesota (2004). She has taught and published widely, both locally and nationally. She has extensive training in treating trauma through several creative modalities, including psychodrama, sociometry, memoir and poetry therapy, with over 20 years of experience working with groups and individuals. She lives and works in St. Louis Park where she writes almost every day with others and is infinitely grateful to call this her life.

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.
