Workshop Description
We live in a culture that simultaneously minimizes expressions of grief, while promoting an attitude that “you never get over it,” leaving bereaved persons to hopelessly work through grief with minimal support. Each bereaved person’s unique protective patterns affect their ability to release pain. Regardless of the type of loss, healing becomes possible when embodied emotional expression is supported. Learn how loss impacts us on five levels of being along with interventions to support healing.

Main Points of Workshop

  • The Effect of Grief on Five Levels of Being
  • Cultural Norms and Messages that affect the Healing Process
