Good Grief Network

The Good Grief Network program, 10 Steps to Personal Resilience & Empowerment in a Chaotic Climate, is an amazing, super supportive and deeply valuable program, designed to support us through the heavy emotions of these crazy times we find ourselves to be living in. Many of us can sometimes feel despair, grief, anxiety or overwhelm, and it is important to support ourselves and each other through this, so that together we can keep moving forward in our lives and life work. The Good Grief Network program builds community and provides the opportunity for growth and learning for resilience and empowerment. Please see the Good Grief Network website at for all the information about this wonderful program.

I have also written here, about my own experience of taking part in an online round of the program in 2019, as part of my series of posts about all the pieces of the puzzle of how I am working towards a better future - this piece is about supporting myself and also supporting others. I have since run a group that began in March 2020 as an in person group in Ballarat and moved online as required, like most things. Running the group again affirmed to me how supportive it is to be part of a group moving through this program together, both during the program, and for growing lasting skills, knowledge, connections and networks for supporting ongoing deepening personal development and forward movement in our lives, together.

All upcoming programs will be online for now, though I hope to return to an in person format also in the future. Local groups can be run in Ballarat, Melbourne and other locations within Victoria. I am open to requests to run groups in other locations, or to help support you to run your own group. The program is designed to be run by anyone, and I would love to help grow this network of support in any way I can, alongside the support provided by the Good Grief founders and wider Good Grief Network.
