Grief is usually associated with death, but it can follow any type of loss, and in this time of unprecedented and unpredictable crisis and disruption many of us are “grieving normal” and experiencing a sense of loss in some way.
When basic routines that we have relied on begin to change or splinter, when fear begins to dominate or own our thinking what tools do we have to slow fear down, connect with others and nourish our depth and innate wisdom?
How can we make personal meaning out of sudden change or crisis?
By writing together and responding to simple prompts we will quietly listen, read, and write our way through pain, isolation, and fear gradually nourishing our capacity to feel connected and grounded. The Grieving Normal Workshop creates a communal experience that is honest, riveting and orienting. Writing and deep listening become stabilizing skills in a world that feels like it’s moving too fast to engage and nourish our ability to ask questions of ourselves and even begin to answer them.
