Please know that the Dying Well Grief Circle is a developing project. If you are interested, please go ahead and RSVP so that we can get a sense of how many to prepare for. Thank you.
Neither grief counseling nor healing service, Grief Circles provide a space for being present to varieties of grief in our lives and world. We sit in a circle, finding comfort in whatever posture we desire. We hear the sounds from live musicians. We are invited to experience the grief in our lives. At various points, the music will stop and silence may come unless persons who wish to speak to the grief they hold. Participants share stories without verbal responses; we share grief and are held in the confidence of the circle. Trained ""holders"" may invite you to experience their embrace; you may accept or decline. The Grief Circle ends with more music, words of gratitude and a transition time and space with warm tea and conversation if you wish to stay.
Grief Circles are a time and space to honor the sadness within you. Being present to the grief you hold can teach you something new about the tasks of living well. Instead of stuffing feelings that are not widely accepted in common places--and sometimes even feared--you are invited and encouraged to inhabit your grief, speak your sadness and learn from your broken heartedness, all the while being held in the circle.
