We live in a society that seems to provide a ready escape for feelings of grief and loss, at all costs. We distract ourselves, deflect, stay busy, watch TV, go online, we shop, collect things, we drink, use substances, all in an unconscious avoidance of feeling our deepest pain and suffering.
As the most profound human emotion, grief manifests for all sorts of reasons, not just the death of a loved one. There's unnamed grief and daily grief, and probably the most shocking to our systems, when any kind of sudden loss knocks at the door.
These are not times necessarily to understand anything. We may feel exhaustion and confusion, anger, frustration, dismay, and lack of trust or faith. It is in this limbo that we can deeply benefit from the support of a group. The power of telling your story not only creates immediate and profound connection, but through empathy and compassionate resonance of a group process we can come to find profound healing.
When we are supported to drop into feeling loss and grief, we start to understand ourselves in a whole new way. Anyone who has suffered sudden loss understands how in one moment, everything changes. It effects us to the core, a quickening of the soul, an alteration of DNA. And this can be a true opportunity; to have faith in a compassionate process that can actually provide a molting where we shed the parts of us that are no longer applicable, to a new working model in the present.
We all grieve differently requiring a specifically refined approach for each situation:
Groups can meet once for an extended period, meet weekly or monthly as needed.
Participants can include immediate or extended family, friends, co-workers, and even acquaintances
