Grieving: Change and Growth
Paths toward completion
In this program, you can learn to grieve fully and responsively. Rather than a destructive and inhibiting experience, grieving can be growth-enhancing.
Life involves ongoing experiences of attachment and separation, situations of helplessness and disappointment. We face separations and losses through relationships ending, deaths, aging, career changes and geographical moves, children growing up and leaving home, fading dreams or the interruption of life by illness, injury or trauma. Issues broader than our personal lives, such as our environment and the state of our world may be fueling our grief. In facing planned or unpredicted transitions, or issues seemingly beyond our control, we must leave something behind.
This program is for people who want to complete issues of loss related to:
- Relationships – separation, divorce, death
- Body and Life Transitions – illness, surgery, abortion, aging
- Change – career change, relocation, financial status
- Global Concern – environment, poverty, war
Using a range of experiential forms, including the creative use of ceremony, you will have opportunities to learn about the grieving process, express your feelings, grieve fully, and develop a map toward deepening inner strength and wholeness.
