Sojourners - People on a Journey Through Life's Seasons

A support group for widowed men and women who are beyond the very early stages of grief. This group is for people who have dealt with the overwhelming feelings that accompany loss and have accepted that their life has drastically changed but is not over. One of the goals of this group is to learn about adjusting to a new way of life.  Attending a grief workshop such as "From Grief to New Hope" is recommended before participating in the Sojourners group.
