Finding Our Way Through the Wilderness of Grief-Virtual Support Group for Men

November 16, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The “Finding Our Way” Men’s Group focuses on the challenge of integrating your loss to define a new version of yourself, find meaning and purpose, and receive and give support to others.  We are forever changed by our losses, but we have choices in how we change and who we will become.  We will listen to, learn from, and support one another on our individual journeys of discovery to find hope and healing after our losses.

“Finding Our Way” Structure:

  •  9 week closed group limited to 12 members. 
  •  Co-facilitated by Greg Eckerman and Ken Slesarik. 
  • Meetings will be virtual (on-line) to enable us to reach our brothers in loss across North America. 
  • We will follow The Wilderness of Grief – Finding Your Way, by Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph.D. 
  • Group meets weekly on Tuesday evenings at 6 PM, MST, starting November 16, 2021

Session Dates: 11/16, 11/23, 11/30, 12/7, 12/14, 12/21, 12/28, 1/4, 1/11

We welcome new and previous Men’s Group members.  If you have suffered these tragic losses and are struggling to figure out how to survive, please contact Greg (greg@ericshouse.org or 480-734-3423) to learn whether this group might be right for you.  Pre-registration is required! If someone you know is struggling with his loss, please gently encourage him to contact Greg.

Loss of a loved one is devastating. It can drive us into isolation.  Losses to addiction, suicide, or sudden trauma only increase the complexity of our grief – adding layers of guilt, anger, or shame.  The holidays can be an especially difficult time.

Whether you’ve lost a child, sibling, parent, or close friend, EricsHouse Men’s Groups create a safe space where you can risk sharing your loss and pain in the presence of other men who have their own deep personal experiences of loss – who will not judge you, presume to ‘fix’ you, invade you, or abandon you. 

Greg lost his stepson, Eric, to suicide in February, 2016.  He is a co-founder of EricsHouse, has facilitated or co-facilitated all EricsHouse Men’s Groups, and is an EricsHouse Grief Companion.

Ken lost his son, Kenny, to an accidental fentanyl overdose in December, 2019.  He is a Special Needs Teacher, children’s poet and author, and an Associate Grief Specialist at EricsHouse.
