Bristol: Grief Circle (new this autumn)

Bristol: Grief Circle (new this autumn)

About the Circle

  • A safe, structured place for mourning and healing our losses.
  • You don’t need to have been bereaved. Grief can also be for lost loves and lost dreams.
  • Mourning is a human need. If we don’t know how to mourn, we might find ourselves getting depressed.
  • We create a safe space, where all feelings are welcome.
  • Learn how we heal traumatic experiences.
  • Mourning can be a healing and integrating process.
  • There will be input each week, as well as space to feel your grief and connect with what is most precious in your life.
  • Includes: how to be with a grieving person and ‘Steps to Mourning and Healing’

Guideline for choosing your contribution

  • Choose the lowest figure if you are on benefits and/or regularly struggling to pay the rent.
  • Choose the highest figure if you are regularly eating out well and/or paid for by your employer, and/or want to support others with fewer financial resources to attend this workshop and/or want to support Seed of Peace spread NVC in areas of the world where there are fewer financial resources.
  • Choose a figure in the middle e.g. £205, if you are in between.
