Walking with grief
Are you mourning the loss of a loved one?
Join our bereavement walking group in the beautiful grounds of Bristol Memorial Woodlands, near Thornbury, Bristol.
Tap into the therapeutic potential of the natural environment by joining our walking group in seven weekly walks, led by experienced professionals in the field of grief.
What to expect
Walking through the woodlands along a guided path, taking in a variety of tranquil settings. Take the time to walk in silence, talk with others, moments to pause and reflect, and the opportunity to share with others your memories of the loved one who has died.
Our aim is to provide a natural canvas and a safe space for you to find meaning in your life after loss.
