Beginning Experience - Hudson Valley Team

The Hudson Valley Beginning Experience Team is made up of “wounded healers” – men and women – who are themselves, widowed, separated, or divorced, but further along in the grieving process, who have been specially trained to assist those who are suffering from the loss of a loved one. All of the team members are past participants in the Beginning Experience weekend.

The programs are based on the effectiveness of peer-to-peer ministry and the extraordinary life-giving healing that occurs when hurting people share their experiences to help others.

Beginning Experience peer ministers are in various places on the journey through grief, from newly hurting to nearly healed. As “wounded healers,” they reach out from their own place in the journey to those who are newer to it.
