Circle of Friends for the Dying actively promotes events that give people the opportunity to explore their feelings about death—such as our monthly Circle of Friends Death Cafés—and to learn about the various issues pertaining to dying, like preparing your end-of-life directives or taking advantage of hospice when the time comes. We also sponsor events to celebrate life, such as “Circlestock”, a concert and dance party. Our inaugural event was held last year at Colony in Woodstock and pictured here.

Sharing our Hearts, Our Grief
A remote support group for adults affected by COVID-19
This support group is for adults who have had a loss due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Sharing one’s grief with others with a similar traumatic loss can open pathway to healing.
Co-facilitated by Elise Lark, PhD, LCSW & Rev. Robin Lane, LCSW
Five Fridays: noon to 1:30 pm
Dates: July 31, and August 7, 14, 21, 28
Grief is a natural response to a significant loss. How we experience an illness and dying process will influence how we grieve.
The unprecedented circumstances of the Coronavirus pandemic can complicate grief.
Conditions family and friends encounter are enforced quarantine and constrained capacity to communicate with and visit loved ones; pronounced feelings of uncertainty and helplessness; prolonged hospitalizations; and sustained distress and anticipatory grief.
Suggested donation: $0 to $125 for the series. Kindly discern what you can afford.
Donations can be made online at ww.cfdhv.org. All funds go toward opening Circle Home.
