If you have answered or saw yourself in any of these places, you could use some peer-to-peer support from other grievers who want to also heal wholeheartedly. Joy and suffering can co-exist if you know what to do with your pain.

Because grief is so complicated and personal we look at grief through the lense of the whole person and offer wholehearted healing.
A holistic approach means to provide support that looks at the whole person, not just their mental health needs. The support should also consider their physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing. ... A holistic approach focuses on a person's wellness and not just their illness or condition.
Grief is a part of the human experience. Something the Church has so much to say about; yet, in the western culture, we have not traditionally provided support for those experiencing grief and loss inside the Church community. This leaves people seeking support in the secular world and feeling isolated, forgotten, and unseen, limiting their ability to heal. We believe that we all can accompany the Divine Physician on the path to healing and restoration, especially when we have a community that supports us.
No one should have to bear the burden of grief and loss alone. Like Simon of Cyrene and St. Veronica, we have created a peer-to-peer support community to welcome a grieving person into the community by pairing them with a grief flock who has experienced a similar loss. This community of grievers intimately knows what the grief process looks like. These relationships help provide hope for the griever and gives them the chance to talk to someone uniquely familiar with their experience.
