Cypress Lawn Grief Support Group
Date & Time
Grieving the loss of someone we love is one of life’s most difficult and painful experiences.
Grief is a journey – from the shock and sadness of loss to the gradual adjustment of a new life without the one we love. Every person’s journey is unique. In navigating this journey of grief, many people ﬁnd support and healing from being with others who are also experiencing grief.
Cypress Lawn offers a facilitated grief support group, meeting 6:30 pm – 8 pm on the ﬁrst and third Tuesday of every month. No one should ever feel they have to walk this journey alone. We are a community, and we are here to support and walk with you in your grief.
We warmly invite you to join us.
Our grief support groups are free of charge and all are welcome.
Please call 650-550-8808 to let us know you will be attending, so that we may better serve you.
Our facilitator, Jeremy E. Damec, received his Masters in Counseling Psychology from University of San Francisco in 2006. He has worked with youth and families in San Francisco and in Mexico providing therapeutic services and developing community programs to support youth development. After his mother’s death from cancer in 2009, and his very personal walk with grief and loss, he began his journey in 2015 working with families and their loved ones who are approaching the end of life. Jeremy completed the Sojourn Chaplaincy program at San Francisco General Hospital in 2018. At Sojourn, he cultivated a deeper foundation and understanding of grief but also of hope which he brings into his work.
In his own life and in his experiences walking with people in their grief, he has come to understand that grief is a very personal journey, and if we allow, grief can teach us to love deeply, to live fully, and to embrace all that is before us. As difficult and as deep as our grief can be, Roshi Joan Halifax says it best: “To turn away from grief is to turn away from life.” Let us walk together in our grief, to experience, and to heal.
