Webinar: The Grieving Self – In and of the Field

1 May 2024 @ 5:30 pm 8:30 pm

Grief cascades across and through every life, human and non-human. Its waters flow over, between and around the rocks of being, down the river of inevitable loss, change and death. Sometimes the waters rage, sometimes howl, other times trickle, almost imperceptibly. Always here, always there.

Grief and grieving emerge from the relational and phenomenal field, influenced by the cultural, ecological, and situational. Grief surfaces within a context of a particular seen or unseen loss, transition or death, and longs to be tended by a coexisting dialogical soul. In a culture in which suffering is avoided and rituals are few, this can be hard to find, even in therapy.

In this webinar, grief and loss will be foregrounded as a core human experience which holds fundamental significance. This webinar will be a mix of presentation, breakout sharing and discussion in order for participants to learn and engage with grief and grieving to support therapeutic practice.


GANZ Members: $45. Non-GANZ Members: $95.
