Writing with Grief (workshop)
October 25, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$30 – $50
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.
