A series of Grief circles
You are invited to a series of listening circles to remember people or things that have been lost in our lives, including innocent parts of ourselves. The circles will be a collective time for sharing and being witnessed compassionately in our grief.
Grief as a response to loss and death is part of life, but is often seen as something to be fixed or avoided, as if there was something ‘wrong’, if you are feeling sad about the end of a relationship, the loss of a job or of failing health, or if you are still grieving a parent, sibling, partner or child who died a while ago. You may feel pressure to ‘move on’ to the next thing rather than acknowledging the pain of the loss. These circles are also a space for acknowledging empathic pain of tragedy not in our immediate life; war, violence, pollution, loss of any life.
In my journeying with grief, I am learning how to witness the 'felt sense' of my own grief, how to be notice, welcome and allow the experiences of grief in my body. This practice draws on Nonviolent communication (from where I learnt that grief and mourning is a human need and without it I suffer), and Focussing. I will offer practice in this and we will also have time for sharing in a circle.
The circles are open to everyone. You can come to one or all.
The best way to start your journey with nonviolence and nonviolent communication is to try out a 3 hour intro. Contact me to put one on with your group or organisation.
Nonviolent communication is a nifty practice to help you transform external and internal judging and blaming into something more life affirming and fun to be around.
Nonviolent communication helps you be self-responsible, and bring the energy of self-responsibility into a stuck dynamic with other people (and yourself).
Nonviolent communication is a first step to transforming tension, conflict and stuckness in your life.
Nonviolent communication helps you say No, make requests, speak up for your needs and be more alive!
