Start the Journey
The Centre for the Grief Journey offers a variety of resources to grieving people, whether after a bereavement or in the midst of a life threatening situation.
We offer an array of resources utilizing a variety of media. You can choose whether to read a book or article; to watch a video; or to interact with others on our Among Friends group on Facebook.
We also provide practical and resources to people who want to help people in a situation of loss, whether family and friends, colleagues in the workplace , or professional caregivers like counsellors or clergy, hospitals or hospice, human resources or community support agencies, funeral directors or businesses who have an investment in caring for people in a grief situation.
Our educational programmes offer resources to people who assist grieving people, either in the workplace of in their own community. We can provide many tools to assist people, whether simply by sending materials, or by offering comprehensive practical training for those who want to organize and facilitate grief support in their community or organization.
We believe GriefJourney.com provides the most comprehensive grief support programme available today. But we are not satisfied. We intend to add NEW material often and to offer new resources to address the issues that grieving people raise with us.
So visit us often for new grief support content.
