By using small creative writing exercises, we will express our stories of grief, give voice to our sadness or pen down our warm memories of loved ones. This can be healing on its own. You can then share your experiences and advice with others as well as learn from them. As everyone deals with grief differently, this can lead to new ideas. You will work from home: having your own safe space to write, while we will share online our personal stories and give voice to feelings of grief.
The workshop is planned every last Sunday of the month for 2023. You can join in any time, and the sessions stand on their own: you can join once, or multiple times.Student testimony
I really appreciated the workshop. It was such a unique safe and open space: I felt much less lonely in my grieving process, connecting with people going through similar emotions. The writing helped to organize my thoughts and I also can continue on my own to process the feelings further.About the trainer
