About Grief: Finding Our Way

It might be the written word that leaps out and pulls us back to life after grief shatters everything. It may be that we have to learn (or re-learn) that art is as present grief, and then allow the art to reshape us as readily as grief destroyed us. The path from the moment of crisis and loss back to some sort of transformed life will not look exactly the same for any of us. But the tools for creating our unique paths are available to any and all of us. We must make the choice and commitment to pick up the tools, try them out, cherish what works, and let go of what does not work.

This does not mean we "get over it" or "find closure" or forget what happened. It simply means that we find ways to use creativity to integrate grief experiences into our everyday lives. We learn to live again after death. We learn to prosper again after total loss. This grief coaching group is all about trying out various tools, playing, finding our way. It isn't just "rebuilding brick by brick". This session is about finding the grains of sand that can become pebbles, that become rocks, that become cement, to make the bricks with which we can rebuild one by one.

No previous art experience necessary. Some participants just use the process for self discovery and relaxation practice. Others use session materials to fuel writing memoir, novel, short stories, poetry, making art, journalling, collage, painting, scrapbooking or other expressive arts. It's entirely up to you.
