Griefwork and Ritual (Radical re-imagining of what we think we know about Grief, includes a Grief Ceremony and introduction to keening)
This one day workshop is an opportunity to sit and be with your own grief. There will be a gentle introduction in the morning into the different ways we can perceive grief, and you will be given opportunity to practice skills for being both with your own grief and also with bereft people. The afternoon will contain a 2.5-hour long grief ritual and ceremony plus an introduction to keening (the art and shamanic act of communal grieving and lamenting). By the end of the day hopefully, you will leave with more peace and spaciousness within having released emotion and have some useful tools in your toolbox for being with, working with, people in grief.
Cost of the day is £60 (£40 for Red Tent EOL Students) or £100 for both days if attending Song Sound and Silence on the 17th March as well.
