Guest Speaker: Jason Kemp has facilitated several grief and loss groups and has spoken throughout the Twin Cities area at various groups. Jason started his career as a social worker and has held various positions in the corporate and public services and criminal justice sectors since then. Jason holds a Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and graduate degrees in business administration and public administration from Capella University. Jason comes to the group today with personal experience of grief and loss, including loss of multiple family members in a short duration of time, losses due to suicide, complex health issues/ terminal conditions, and substance addiction. Jason will be speaking with our group today on the topics of multiple loss and caring for yourself, practicing self-care, and becoming more aware as you experience grief and loss and attempt to find new paths forward in 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.
