Second Annual Retreat for Grieving Men
Those who are grieving the death of a loved one may find that it is one of the most intense and difficult experiences that an individual can experience. For men, the feelings and emotions of grief can be particularly difficult to process, as the pressures of daily life keep them locked into a daily routine and locked out of the support they need to begin to work through the pain of their loss.
One way that men who are grieving can release their emotions in a healthy manner is take the time to share them with others who have experienced similar losses. To help meet this need, Hospice Care Team is offering its second annual retreat for grieving men on January 23rd from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at an area retreat center. Facilitated by HCT’s chaplains, the goal is to provide men with a special time for to make connections with other men who are grieving, in a natural setting. Some of the day’s activities will include a support session, lunch, a wood painting activity, and a special closing ceremony.
There is no charge, for this event, as SSBG Health Collaborative funding has been made possible by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services and the Houston-Galveston Area Council. However, space is limited and pre-registration is required.
