Understanding Your Bereavement - Remembering and Honouring

This workshop aims to give you the opportunity to express your emotions creatively as well as the chance to talk through your emotions with others.

Grief can be complicated and perplexing.  There is no road map to show us how we should grieve, or a step-by-step guide warning us of what we should expect.  There are generalisations and commonalities, some of which are outlined in this presentation:    https://kent.cloud.panopto.eu/Panopto/Pages/Viewer.aspx?id=0fa387b1-8ab4-469f-a51d-acb100b38b47&start=10 

However, what we know is that grief feels personal and lonely, sometimes we want to cocoon ourselves away while other times we may want to talk about the deceased non-stop.  In this workshop I aim to give you the opportunity to do one or both of these.  The first part will be given to prompted individual expressions by creative means (in words or images). After the break, you will be sent another link to join during which you are invited to share as much or as little as you wish with others in the group, and muddle through your emotional maze with us. 

The link to our Zoom meeting will be sent to you the day of the workshop; the session will be organised in 2 sets of 40 minutes with a 10 minute break in between.  You will have the option of using the video and audio functions to connect with the group, or turn them off as you wish. For the second session, it is hoped that you will share and contribute at least via the audio and/or chat functions in Zoom, whichever feels more comfortable for you. Please have available some paper, pens, pencils, crayons, pastels etc. Whatever you can find and would like to try using to get creative.
