Expressive Loss & Grief Support – 6 Week Group Course

Loss & grief changes us, pushing us into a tumultuous ocean of unbearable emotion that invites us to explore new ways of being in the world. Grief invites us to bear the unbearable.

Bravely stepping out and safely opening our hearts, allowing others to witness our grief is medicine for the soul. As we find ways to honor our loss and allow energy to flow through our body we begin to heal and learn to live with sacred scars.

Expressive Grief Work offers a structured time and space for individuals to intentionally come together to share and process emotion. While there is nothing to fix and there is no right or wrong way to grieve, we can support each other as human beings through listening, sharing and being together. We can hold space compassionately and without judgement. We can support each other as we walk together along life’s path.

Grief itself is deeply subjective and the definition broad. We can experience deep grief and loss for a loved one, a pet, career, relationship, a lost world, or dream. This Expressive Grief course is for those who have experienced a significant loss of someone or something close to their heart and are seeking to participate in a safe and supportive group environment. Grief can be recent or long ago.
