Grief as a Mystical Journey:
An Interactive, Experiential Workshop
If you are mourning the death of a loved one or a loss of any kind (including divorce, job loss, pet loss or any major life transition), your grief can be more difficult during the Winter season. This is especially true during Covid 19, when in addition to grieving the loss of loved ones, we are also experiencing social isolation and disruption in our daily routines.
For many bereaved individuals, the holidays can be overwhelmingly sad because their loved ones aren't present in physical form. We all respond to that sadness in different ways, and methods of coping can span a vast spectrum. Some choose to skip the holidays altogether, abandoning traditional family customs that are painful reminders of holidays past. Others continue -- and enhance -- those traditions by including departed loved ones in new rituals specifically designed to bring their presence into the festivities.
In this workshop, we will explore a variety of experiential tools for working with trauma, grieving in community and multi-cultural, spiritual practices for deep inner work, including guided meditation, art therapy processes, and sacred ceremony for moving the “stuck” energy of grief out of our bodies and into a more spacious, more ventilated emotional landscape.
The workshop is based on Dr. Terri Daniel's popular GRIEF AS A MYSTICAL JOURNEY workshops, which are designed to help participants move toward internal transformation rather than focusing on external events.
