Description

"Grief doesn't change you it reveals you." J R R Tolkien

There is nothing more devastating to us than loss. It hurts the heart and leaves us with an emptiness that is difficult to fill. Every loss is the result of the end of an emotional relationship with someone or something.

Grief is our response to loss. Sometimes we don’t even know that we are grieving, yet we are aware that part of us is stuck in a moment of time. Sometimes the cause of the stuckness isn’t the grief itself, but the fact that we don’t even recognise that we have lost something that needs to be grieved.

Grief is not there to inflict pain, grief is accompanying an even deeper feeling. Perhaps the truth about your life, what you value and what you need. Maybe how much you wanted something, how deeply you cared about someone or how far you have come from where you were.

When we swallow our grief we can stay stuck in a loop that stops us fully living our life. When we can make space for our grief - allowing it to be known and acknowledged - we can receive its wisdom and its gifts. Our grief is here to show us the deeper meaning of our life. It allows us to fully feel what we value and how deeply we feel.

This is an opportunity to turn inward and look at the vulnerability of your own heart that knows the truth about loss and the gifts that are waiting for you. To be held and to hold in a space where it is safe to face into the emptiness of loss and open up to your beauty and connection.

This is for you if you if you feel ready to:
Lean in and explore the grief and loss you maybe holding.
Recognise that there is something that you need to grieve.
Touch your loss and make space for the feelings your loss brought into your life
Unravel the myths and blocks about grief and loss that you are carrying
Create a new relationship with your loss and what gifts it has for your life

Using sound, movement and gentle group exercises drawing on Traditional Chinese Medicine, Shadow Work and ritual honouring we will create a gentle and compassionate space to explore our relationship to loss and grief and where it may be living inside of us.

Some of the ways we work are through:

Sharing circles and exercises to build connections and safety in the group
Gentlle energy and breathing exercises to feel into our bodies
Exploration of the blocks and conditioning that we maybe holding
Sound and movement to connect with our inner wisdom and truth

A one day workshop in Bristol, from 10am-5.30pm on Saturday 24th March 2018. Gasworks Studios
