You are warmly invited to join us for this taster session. It is designed to be an introduction to the lineage and approach we work with in the longer workshops.

Contents of the session

* A short presentation on the background to Grief Tending in Community, with particular reference to the work of Francis Weller.
* Group discussion and sharing about the different faces of grief.
* A short talk from a previous participant sharing their experience of attending workshops and the positive impact they experienced afterwards.
* Time for questions and (where we can!) answers.

Who is it for?

This gathering will be an opportunity to learn more about the grief tending in community approach if you are new to this work and wondering about signing up for an event.

Or you may have attended events before and wish to deepen your understanding of grief tending and contribute to this collective field of inquiry. All welcome.

There is no fee for this event. You are welcome to offer a financial gift on the evening (cash or card) if it feels good to do so. We are a registered charity and the financial gifts we receive help us to cover our costs.
