“Grief is not a feeling; it is a skill of life; and its twin (as a skill of life) is the skill of praise and love of life! Where one is authentically done, there is the other.” – Stephen Jenkinson.
“Living With Grief” is an invitation to feel, think and discuss what it means to identify grief as a daily experience. In addition to the grief that is the result of an indescribable trauma (such as the death of a child) we will also discuss what it means to see each day as a grief process (a series of ‘endings’ and new ‘beginnings’) designed to deepen what it means to live life more meaningfully.
