Embracing the journeys of dying & grief

We love, we lose, we grieve, we die. The journey is real, and in this workshop you’ll explore ways of navigating your experiences of grief, and the reality of your own life and its inevitable end. How can we embrace this reality and find contentment and joy in our living?

Many men struggle with grief, with the loss itself and because of expectations about how men ‘should’ grieve. But the ‘stoic’ man is not always hiding, and the ‘emotional’ man is not always weak! Come and reflect on how you navigate grief, the strengths and risks of your grieving style, and opportunities for growth.

Can you imagine the end of your physical body? Here, you’ll have the opportunity to deeply explore the life you’re living, perhaps without awareness of its inevitable end. This gentle process uses various experiential steps to facilitate your embrace of the path to life’s end.
