Description

A Grief and Healing Workshop about the Depth of Love and Loss in Friendship

Friendship loss is oftentimes a hidden loss. We have grief groups for the loss of family members, for spouses, for partners and for our pets. We rarely have grief groups for the loss of our friends. Friendship which often makes up the fabric of our lives, what makes us feel full, rich, happy, loved and safe somehow gets lost in the world of ritualized grieving. This is an opportunity to be in community with people who “get” friend love, who “get” the power of a friendship history, who “get” the depth of the loss and who “get” the very vital need to honor and mourn this loss in community.

Who is this workshop for?

This is a workshop for anyone who has experienced the loss of a friend and who wants to talk about it, explore it, process it in community. It is for men and women. This loss can have happened at any time for you. What will bring you to this workshop is that the grief and loss of your friend feels more alive in you than feels good to you. It feels unfinished and not fully metabolized.

What will you receive at this workshop?

In this workshop, you will receive information about grief and loss, coping strategies and information about friendship. It is also a “hands on” workshop where we will share stories about our friend, highlights and lowlights and you are encouraged to bring in a picture, obituary, article as you introduce your friend to the group. Who were they, how did you meet, what did you love, what do you miss, what can never be replaced, your journey with their death.

And mostly, we will honor the deep and abiding power of love in friendship.
