Embracing Grief: Holding, Sharing, Witnessing, is a series of regular online grief-tending workshops. Each workshop is a stand alone session, and there is no obligation to come to more than one. However, there is also an opportunity, through attending regularly, to cultivate and nurture an ongoing relationship with your grief, as a journey in both personal and interpersonal healing. In these sessions we provide a space to be witnessed in our grief, and bear witness to the grief of others, and feel the depth of the support and union that often accompanies this shared expression. We do not set out to ‘fix’ our grief or its roots. Instead, we use recognised approaches to tend to and honour our grief exactly as it is, drawing on the practices, rituals and teachings of elders including Sophy Banks, Jeremy Thres, Sobonfu Somé, Malidoma Somé, Joanna Macy, Francis Weller, Martin Prechtel, and others. The sessions are held on Zoom. However, how much you visually engage with the screen is optional. It is essential to prepare a quiet and private space where you won’t be interrupted. As well as our regular monthly slots we will also be hosting occasional additional workshops where we focus on very particular sources of grief.
