“Look closely and you will see
Almost everyone carrying bags
Of cement on their shoulders.
That’s why it takes courage
To get out of bed in the morning
And climb into the day.”
~ Edward Hirsch
We don’t have to suffer a catastrophic loss in order to qualify for the Grief Club.
It is not filled exclusively by people who have been bereaved.
Grief visits us all eventually, but not always in ways that are obvious or recognisable to others.
Transitioning through any of life’s stages will spark grief - before we can make space for what is ahead, we must acknowledge what it is we are leaving behind. These transitions can often appear positive and therefore, even more confusing and ambiguous; like the first-time parent who mourns the freedom they had before kids, or the newlywed adjusting to their new identity.
This session might resonate if any of the following have touched your life;
Emigration, relocating, moving house
Illness or disability
Loss of a friendship or a significant relationship
Retirement, redundancy, change in work role
The intention behind this session is to create a safe space for each of us to just simply be with our grief, knowing that we are accepted and supported unconditionally.
Without needing to share individually, this is an opportunity for your pain and courage to be witnessed by your community.
We will take part in some simple rituals to honour our grief and to frame the session; then move our bodies in a gentle flowing sequence to create space for energy to move, flow and release; take a cleansing pranayama (breath) practice, before settling into some longer held yin poses and finally resting deeply in supported restorative poses.
