When someone experiences loss, there are reactions to such loss. Loss produces grief. Grief is a term used to describe the collective, often compounding reaction to loss. Our responses to loss can arise as result of the death of a loved one, estrangement from family, divorce, loss of a friend, a job, moving to a new location, through many and varied life transitions. Losses can be anticipated, many are often spontaneous, other ambiguous.
Currently at Reformation, a three week All Our Losses, All Our Grief class is held each Winter, Summer, and Fall. Weekly sessions are grounded by three questions: What is loss? What is grief? What is ritual?
