Grief and Loss - How to minimize symptoms Workshop 10th Nov 2015

 20 Oct 2015   published by: Kylie Blacksell

potential to send a person into a state of deep grief and depression.

There’s also the loss of a family pet, a job, a status, financial stability, a marriage, a partnership, a family home, the loss of one’s innocence, losing your childhood (due to “adult” - type circumstances), loss of freedom (for example, due to lack of money, a change of circumstance like an unexpected pregnancy, an unexpected death or an illness in the family – where you’re the primary carer, or a loss of transport like a car, or loss of mobility due to an accident).

There’s also the loss of a way of being – when a relationship changes and you no longer share the same things with that person – or when you’ve decided to change your way of being (by first letting go of old ways of being) to accommodate a circumstance like a new job or new relationship.

So there are many varied forms of loss (most of which aren’t commonly identified by society), that all have the potential to activate the grief response. And this response for each person will vary as much as personalities/personal histories do.

If you’re currently suffering from grief and loss, or if you are aware that you don’t cope well with the loss of certain things, and you would like to cope better, come to our 3hr workshop on managing grief and loss.

At this workshop you will be shown several carefully selected techniques from yoga, mudras (hand and body gestures), pranayam (breathing techniques), affirmations, light and sound therapy and many more disciplines, to bring you a tool box that you can employ at any place and at any time, to help manage the symptoms of grief/loss and to allow you to explore the possibility of having more courage to make the necessary changes in your life, free from the overwhelming fear of suffering debilitating grief as a consequence of the changes.

ALL WORKSHOPS CAN ALSO BE ATTENDED OVER SKYPE FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD!

We would love it if you could join us.

Just bring a note pad and pen, a pillow to sit on (there are some chairs available if you prefer), a water bottle, and comfortable clothing for yoga.

Bookings are essential as there are limited spaces.

The first hour of each workshop is usually yoga, specifically formulated to tackle the issues in the theme of the workshop.

The last two hours are packed full of useful information about this topic, while we eat a yummy and healthy supper. (There is usually a workbook to accompany this section).

Time = 6:30pm – 9:30pm Tue 10th Nov 2015

Cost = $20

All bookings require a $5 non-refundable deposit. There are very limited places so without payment, your place may be given to another.

Workshops are held at Unit 12, Birubi Chambers, 121 Hawker Pl. Hawker. This unit is right on the corner of Beetaloo st and Hawker Pl. Directly opposite the KFC Restaurant. There is a small “Human Happiness” sign at the door. There is ample parking across the road, next to KFC, disabled parking and access at Birubi Chambers, and a toilet inside the unit.
