Auckland Unitarian Church

The dead are not under the earth,
They are in the fire dying down,
They are in the moaning rock,
They are in the crying grass,
They are in the forest, they are in the home:
The dead are not dead.  
— Birago Diop, 20th century Senegalese poet and storyteller

In this 8-week workshop beginning 7 March at 7:30 and continuing on first and third Wednesdays, participants will explore some emotions, experiences, and perceptions that commonly accompany grief. They reflect on personal experiences of grief and share their stories with one another. Together, participants explore the ways in which the grief and mourning practices of Unitarian Universalists are helpful as well as how they might be better and more supportive. The workshop closes with the creation of a list of ways to cope with grief when one’s turn comes.

If you are interested in participating please email to register.  There is a maximum of 12 spaces.
