In remembrance of Natalie A. on the anniversary of her passing one year ago. Our love for you keeps you alive in our hearts forever.
“My Grandmother, my mother’s mother, was an incredible human being. Over the years she taught me so many lessons. Some by holding my hands in hers, some by the warm and gentle examples she would set and others in her sweet Eastern European accent. The one piece of advice that I have shared most often is, ‘The morning is brighter than the night.’ This photo reminds me of her words and the beauty that awaited me on the other side of darkness. Enjoy this sunrise and pass along her loving kindness to those still in the dark.“
Note written by poet Dan Rutberg, who is sharing his Grandmother’s wisdom and inspiration to the other members of his Cancer Caregiver Support Group.

Virtual Living With Loss Support Groups

- Provide a container for sharing and connecting with others in a nurturing and learning environment.
- Increase self-awareness and engagement in self-care.
- Use highly integrative techniques such as meditation, guided imagery, breathwork, gentle body movement, self-expression, and other approaches that are taught in a supportive environment.
- Emphasize a sense of community (never more than 10 people per group).
- Meet on a set day and time each week, 2-hours each week.
- Are facilitated via computer using HIPAA compliant video conferencing platform.
- Are an opportunity to integrate mind-body skills into one’s daily life.
- Are highly supportive, helping group members work through any difficulties along the way.
- There is no fee, but rather by donation only.
Note: This is not a webinar nor an open or drop-in group. Instead this an intimate and highly-supportive experience with a skilled facilitator who is also an equal participant in the group.
Who should you refer to the Virtual Living With Loss Support Groups?
Although everyone can benefit from a support group, we are specifically focused on helping adults (must be 18 and older) of all backgrounds that are dealing with the loss of a loved one. Everyone who joins should be committed to undertaking a journey – the process of understanding and promoting an innate sense of well-being regardless of the presence or absence of specific symptoms or challenges.
Wishing you ease and calm,
