Good Grief! Nature Walking Through Grief and Loss

May 8 – June 26, 2017 7:00 – 8:00 pm

Parks and nature connect us to the cycles of life and death; reminding us of endurance, beauty, and the only constant – change. In the changes and challenges of grief and loss, walking in parks and nature can provide a variety of benefits for different people. For some it will just be moving and getting some exercise, for others it will be the fresh air and natural light, for others it will be the quiet companionship of trees and wildlife, and of people who have no expectations except that they are here together – walking together. Research conducted with Alberta Parks and Mount Royal University has revealed how nature teaches us to grieve. Those who may be experiencing grief and loss can enjoy a gentle, accessible, guided walk through nature, to observe and connect with others who are also grieving.
