Norfolk Grief Tending is a platform for workshops and circles that help us find our way into the ancient practice of tending our grief in community.
Learning to be creatively present with our grief is a sacred work of the soul – and potentially one of the most transformative journeys that we humans can undertake.
For many of us though - perhaps all of us – we can't do this work alone. Norfolk Grief Tending offers an approach that provides a safe container for you to explore this territory in communion with others.
The vulnerability and beauty we encounter as we drink from the cup of sorrow knits us into a web of belonging - not just with other humans, but with the other-than-human and the more-than-human worlds too.
Bereavement, health issues, life changes; long-term grief, passed down through families and culture; pain for the natural world and for future generations; grief that is stuck or frozen... all of this and more is welcome.
The workshops are held by experienced facilitators, working with tried and tested group practices that combine ancient wisdom with modern psychology.
We are drawing largely on the approach pioneered by Sophy Banks and Jeremy Thres, and the teachers that have inspired the work of Grief Tending in Community (based in Devon). This lineage - the shoulders on which we stand - includes Francis Weller, Joanna Macy, Malidoma Some, and Martín Prechtel.
All workshops and sessions are offered on a gift basis - pay what you can.
