The Bereavement Journey

The Bereavement Journey is a course for anyone who has been bereaved, whether recently or several years ago. It is run by Holy Trinity Brompton, an Anglican church in London, and is suitable for anyone, with or without a Christian faith, after the first three months of bereavement. The course is made up of five/six sessions with short talks and small group discussions, and covers topics including: attachment, separation and loss, the pain of grief, and adjusting to change. It is both available in person and online.
