Redefining Grief

6 May 2021

Loss is not just about death. We grieve losses of all kinds: people we loved, people we couldn’t love, pets, relationships, lifestyles, our jobs, a home, friends, freedoms, our dreams and even our dignity.

When someone dies we also often grieve not only their death but the consequence of their death: a lack of support, financial instability, lost hopes. In the time of Covid how can redefining grief help us know what we can realistically expect of ourselves as we grieve, and step forward feeling stronger?

Emma Curtis, Funeral Celebrant and Grief & Resilience Therapist, will be joined by special guest Cara Mair, Founder of Arka Original Funerals, Funeral Director and Consultant and Davina Drummond, artist/activist ARRIVALS + DEPARTURES.

With generous support from Arka Original Funerals
