Living Wholeheartedly with Grief and Loss

October 6, 13 & 20, 2019
with Michelle Marlahan

Grief and loss are a part of every life. Divorce, change of job or retirement, death of a loved one or a pet, a medical diagnosis – these are a natural part of being human.

However, our culture does not acknowledge the profound impact of these events, and definitely does not provide the space for these types of losses to be openly discussed or shared.

In fact, we are often urged, subtly or overtly, to deal with the loss privately and swiftly, and get back to life as though nothing has changed.

Yet it is critical to our heart’s health and the wholeness of who we are to integrate the loss into this new way of living. It is our right to work with the loss at our own pace, in our own way, eventually learning to live wholeheartedly with – not in spite of – that loss.

In this series, we will explore the many facets of loss through:

  • discussion

  • integration tools (right-brain activities)

  • journaling

  • meditation

  • gentle movement

  • community

Critical to a healthy, fluid grieving process, we will debunk the myths of:

  • closure

  • “stages” of grief

  • a grief timeline

  • a “right way” to grieve

This is not therapy nor a fix-it group. It is a safe space in which to share, an opportunity to open to your own experience, to feel your connection to others in loss and through that, explore the idea of a wholehearted life.

You are welcome here. Come with curiosity and gentleness.
