Many things can provoke grief: the loss of a loved one through death, or the loss of a hope, dream, wish or expectation. In three interactive workshops, participants will learn about the grieving process and be introduced to various models that help to normalise the grief response. They will explore complicated grief, including pathological grief reactions, and the mediating factors that facilitate or hinder the grieving process. Love stretches our heart to the limits of what it can hold, and grief, to the limits of what it can bear. Finally, participants will look at the fear of healing as well as the concept of meaning-making, and how to stay connected to the deceased while learning to live a more meaningful life. Death ends a life, not a relationship.

 Session 1 (Saturday 15 May): The grieving process

Session 2 (Saturday 22 May): Complicated grief

Session 3 (Saturday 29 May): Finding meaning in loss
