Grief has a random nature. It is not sequential or linear – it is highly individual.
Grief can be likened to many things. Metaphors can be a good way to try to depict what the changing grief experience is like for each of us, and so we will use metaphor in this session to gain further insight into our grief journeys.
This session will be facilitated by Su-Rose McIntyre, counsellor and author of “The Grief Kaleidoscope: Metaphors for Grief” (Morning Star Publishing).Find out more »
