Grief can be experienced as pure loss. The death of a loved one a descent into pitiless darkness.
Agony eventually turns into ache and helplessness usually finds an end to itself, but in retrospect it may turn out we have metabolized death only up to a certain point. There is unfinished business in our hearts, in our solar plexus, in the kind of attitude or energy we put out, in how we move or breathe, in what we dare to say or do.
Meanwhile, many thinkers and traditions have taught that death itself is a teacher, perhaps an ultimate teacher, with ultimate lessons.
In this workshop you will be invited to engage with a range of religious and spiritual meditations on death, and to use those in order to reflect on what you have learned, or perhaps not wanted to learn, in losing someone you loved.
