There are no 'shoulds' in grief. It will often take longer than it 'should' and always longer than you want it to. Writing through grief can be healing, as the words on paper are spoken from the heart. Authentic mourning anchored in feeling your feelings is an opportunity to embrace your open heart in ways that allow for and encourage healing. 

This four week workshop series will introduce you to writing techniques that will help express those deep raw emotions of grief. Through guided meditation and structured writes, explore the different dimensions of grief and yourself.

Obtain the relief that comes when you can express your thoughts and feelings and know that you have put them down somewhere.

Over the four weeks, your writings will reflect a map of your journey towards healing, and a deeper understanding of yourself and others. By writing your grief you will find comfort, inspiration and acceptance within a group of like-minded people.

Whether the grief you carry is from an actual death, or from some of the many losses we sustain in life, this writing series is for you. Be welcomed into a safe space with the other grief journeyers. While writing is definitely therapeutic, we will not be doing therapy at these workshops. Our focus will be on the writing practice and the healing power of writing. 

You are not alone---come write from the heart. 

Maximum 8 people per workshop, minimum 3. 

Please bring your journal/notebook and a pen. Refreshments will be provided.
