“Grief Letter” an ongoing community-based project
“Grief Letter” is an ongoing community-based project where people can share their personal experience of loss and grief in a form of a letter.
A resource by NATALIA MILLMAN
This concept grew out of my own experience of loss, coping with grief and finding light ahead. The process of writing has long been proven to have healing properties. Writing down and materialising thoughts helps release tension, organise mental chaos and decipher traumatic triggers.
Writing the letter addressed to the deceased is a powerful way of diving into subconscious, processing memories, closing some chapters, asking for forgiveness or advice, express anger or regrets or just put your thoughts down without overthinking. According to Harvard Health, there is some research into how disclosing deep emotions through writing, can help us cope with intense feelings of grief.
To take part in “Grief Letter”, please write a letter to someone you have lost or are grieving, on the paper provided, using black ink pen.
· There is no minimum word count.
