Grief: Loving, Living, Thriving - Workshop & Retreat
In this workshop and mini-retreat, we will invite and honor our grief, visit inner wisdom and refuge, share and refresh our sense of connection. We will bring in heart-body-mind practices to support the grief process, rooted in Yasemin’s MCCG program.
We will hold these dear and elemental:
• Acknowledging that grief is a normal reaction to the losses we experience;
• Respect for our grief and being with it;
• Tapping into our inner resources to support us through grief.
We will practice techniques for:
• relaxation and calm,
• working with difficult emotions,
• cultivating present moment awareness.
