Grief is a natural reaction to change, whether that is a relationship ending, a child leaving home, or someone dying. Sometimes grief can take a long time to integrate into life, and it is not uncommon to forget about our body in this process. However, being in touch with our body does give us more of a chance to process our feelings, it makes them more manageable and gives us back a sense of control.

In this workshop, you will learn supportive and appropriate movements and self-touch skills to help you connect with your body and feelings, to provide a sense of solidity and relief. These simple to learn techniques can then be adapted or practised on others, with their permission. Instead of not knowing how we can help, we will have something, literally, at our fingertips.
