Healing Lens: An Exploration of Grief and Loss through Words | Tapestries of Grief 2022 by Montfort Care (Grief Matters)
20 August @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Through the reading of texts with themes that centre on grief, the workshop provides a platform for participants to explore reactions arising from a loss. Through the writing of their own poem, participants can give voice to their grief and capture their own journey and learning as a part of a continuing narrative.
Writing is often a sorting and rebuilding process. More than eliciting and normalising grief reactions, it is hoped that the creative space would allow participants to speak what is on their heart without judgment in remembrance of their loved one, while being engaged in meaning-making through the healing lens of words and narratives.
