Nov 19 Grief Walking Workshop: Tap into Social Support After a Loss
Time & Location
About the Event
The purpose of this workshop is to tap into social support after a loss.
We have all gone through loss and especially in these times we can feel the pain of loss. This workshop explores a Liberating Structure in development called Grief Walking, reminding us we are not alone.
We will be asked to bring to mind a loss. Preferably one that is small or medium; not necessarily a large loss.
Then everyone is invited to write on their own in response to four prompts.
We will ask for a volunteer (Note: no one has to share) to share in turn each of their four prompts.
And with each prompt shared, someone who resonates with what is read will "walk with them."
(Ex: "David, I will walk with you")
(It will be explained more at the start of the workshop)
Then we will debrief why each person chose to walk with the person sharing their loss.
We are leading this not only for you; but also so you can learn this structure and lead it with those in your circle.
