Grief Café ~a Grief and Bereavement Support Group
Grief Café is an eight-week session facilitated by a Pastoral Care Team. The group offers emotional and spiritual support for those who have experienced a significant loss in their life. There are no steps to this program -it is a contemplative approach to surviving loss, within your own time and space.
Grief has a language all its own –it’s complicated –it’s undefined, with no meaningful answers. Grief Café is a place to connect with the emotional pain of loss, loneliness, anger, sadness, or guilt. Learning to live with the mystery of our humanity is a process where you may find, you are not alone, and we are just passing through.
The grief and bereavement support group is based on sufficient enrollment. It is held every Tuesday in the back room of Enlightened Café. The next session begins on Tuesday, June 4th, 2019 and starts at 7p to 8:30p. Please call (609) 270-4443 to register.
Coming this spring… A Grief Garden to Comfort Your Soul
All are welcome to work at the Grief Garden to create a beautiful memory of your family and friends. Working in a garden helps cultivate patience as you deal with grief. And this experience may quietly open the love and grace in your heart so that you may shine like the sun.
The dates and time will be announced at group.
Enlightened Cafe is an all-organic, non GMO restaurant with a holistic mindset. Working under the Hansen Foundation, Enlightened Cafe is a non-profit organization supporting the Foundation’s mission.
What is the mission?
The Hansen Foundation’s overall purpose is to raise funds for philanthropic purposes. Particularly, we aim to help those recovering from addiction by assisting those in need to access treatment and provide sober living.
The Hansen Foundation owns Serenity Houses, long-term recovery residences in Atlantic County, New Jersey. The Serenity House staff treats all residents as individuals – each with unique lives. More importantly, they provide them with the tools and skills they need to maintain productive lives in recovery.
Who We Are
The Hansen Foundation, without a doubt, embraces RECOVERY. Especially for those who suffer from substance use disorders, their families and friends. More than Sober Living, our Serenity Houses and Serenity Estates help addicts access treatment, promote healthy and sustainable life choices and reunite families.
Accordingly, our Hope Farm and Community Education Programs introduce a holistic approach to wellness and productive living. Hansen Foundation raises funds for Resident Scholarships and to supplement needs for our life-saving endeavors.
How does this tie into Enlightened Cafe?
All of the profits made at Enlightened Cafe go directly back into the Foundation to support the funds for Resident Scholarships and supplemental needs.
