We're delighted to be offering a 5-week grief tending journey, starting in September. Gathering weekly allows connections within the circle to deepen over time, and will be suitable both for those who are new to this approach, and for seasoned grief tenders.

This may call to you if you are travelling through a particularly difficult time of pain and loss, and want to receive some more extended holding and support. It will also be a place for you to develop your relationship with grief as a force for transformation and healing.

We welcome the many faces of grief, including:

* grief for bereavement, health issues and life changes
* grief passed down through families and culture
* grief that feels stuck or frozen
* those grieving for the natural world, for the destruction of what we love, and for future generations

For many of us, sharing our vulnerability and witnessing each other in the beauty and mystery of our grief is a strong medicine that helps bring us home to what it is to be fully human, in solidarity with each other and with the natural world. As we step into the waters of grief, we often discover that it is part of an organic flow that also helps awaken our joy and our sense of aliveness. 

This journey will be facilitated by Sarah Durrant and Liz Day.
