At Lyall, we believe that our experiences of loss and grief can be a profound turning point in our lives personally and spiritually.  Throughout the year Lyall offers several six-week sessions of Grief Circles, when we gather together as a group to help name and speak to this transition in the hope that we will find our way to a more profound integration and gratitude.
