Whether coming to terms with unexpected professional outcomes or the end of a long-term relationship, we need a process that helps us identify the losses we experience regularly. This prepares us to deal with major losses (like the death of someone beloved). We have all done some grieving in our lives but engaging in a grief practice strengthens our ability to cope with change and develop resilience. This is a studio for addressing loss, large and small.
In this workshop, we discuss the different losses of identity that come along with grief and adjusting to new normals in the face of loss. When people can identify the shifts in identity that occur often in society as practice for greater loss they can recognize that something within them has also died–for example the shifts in identity that come with puberty, employed to unemployed, single to partnered, partnered to single, social trauma, and of course death of those close to us. With all these shifts grief can appear, even when they are joyous occasions.
Class size will be limited to 20 and confidentiality commitments will be made to protect the privacy of each participant.
In this workshop we practice:
- How to identify and access grief in the body
- How to adjust to shifts in outcome
- How to prepare for significant transitions
- Develop a personal practice to address grief
