Good Grief

To live and to love inevitably means we experience the deep pain of loss: loss of loved ones through death, illness or separation; loss of connection to place; to work; to meaning; even the loss of hopes and dreams. Everyone experiences grief in their own unique way. Yet we don’t have to carry that grief alone and in silence. In this workshop we will create a ritual and ceremony – a safe space and opportunity for men to talk about and express their grief in verbal and non-verbal ways. By doing so we may find, as others have done before us, that grief can become a portal into richer and deeper ways of experiencing life more fully.
