Description

Good Grief! Nature Walking Through Grief and Loss

Research has revealed how nature teaches us to grieve. Our 8-week program is a collaborative effort between Mount Royal Universtiy, Alberta Parks and the Friends of Fish Creek; it offers those experiencing grief and loss a gentle, accessible guided walk through nature to observe, to chat, to enjoy fresh air and the natural world. If you wish to gather with us at a local coffee shop for further conversation, feel free to stay for a bit longer! This program is not intended as counselling, but as an opportunity to immerse in nature and receive the benefits it can bring to your journey to heal.

The meeting place for our walks will change each week; once registered, you'll receive the schedule. Walks will take place on Monday evenings starting September 11th to October 30th, from 6:30-8pm.

Registration will hold your place for all 8 sessions.

Cost is $25

As this is an outdoor program, please ensure that you dress for the weather and wear good walking shoes; while this walk will be on paved pathways, there are places where the pavement may be uneven.

Poor weather or other circumstances beyond our control may necessitate a session being cancelled; we will do our best to inform you within a few hours of the session start time via email. If you have questions as to whether or not the session will go ahead, please contact the Friends at 403-238-3841.

Finally, if you have any mobility issues that could impede your participation in this program, please get in touch with us prior to Septeber 1st.
