B.E. – Beginning Experience:

 B.E. is a support group for those coping with the pain of the loss of their life partner, through Death, Separation or Divorce. Few people are able to cope alone with the pain of loss. Do you find that you need more support than family and friends can provide? Seeking help is a sign of strength and self-knowledge – not weakness. This is a healing ministry, which helps to resolve the grief that goes with the end of a marriage or relationship. Coping effectively with bereavement is a skill we can all learn.  Next residential weekend will be held 17th  – 19th November 2017,  in Emmaus Retreat Centre, Swords, Co Dublin.  For further information contact,0860877379,email bedublin@gmail.comwww.beginningexperience.ie
