Writing with Grief (workshop)

October 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$30 – $50

 

An intimate, creative workshop where you can explore your grief through writing, gain new insights, and reflect on loss with others.

About this event

With the ongoing impacts of the pandemic, as well as the many other losses we may encounter in life, grief and loss will touch us ALL at some point. However, it’s not often that we make time to sit with our grief, explore it creatively, and reflect on it with others.

This workshop will be facilitated by writer, poet, and founder of The Grief Cocoon, Gabriela Georges, who has been facilitating grief and loss events and workshops for over 6 years following the loss of her Mum at age 20. In 2017, she successfully completed a Master of Arts & Community Practice through which she completed a thesis on the impact of poetry, performance, and community engagement on the lived experience of grief and loss.

This workshop is for you if you’re currently grieving a loss including, but not limited to:

    loss of a family member, friend, and/or pet
    loss of identity or a future self
    loss of health or ability
    loss of a job, relationship, home, or land
    loss of freedoms and/or normality due to the pandemic

In this workshop, you will:

    Explore grief through guided writing prompts
    Connect with others who are grieving
    Increase your self-awareness
    Gain new insights around your experiences with grief
    Have your grief acknowledged and validated

People of all writing levels are welcome, no experience necessary.

This workshop is hosted by The Grief Cocoon and supported by the Centre for Building Better Community.

If you have any questions or would like to know more, please email Gabriela at thegriefcocoon@gmail.com
