Resilience and navigating through grief
Have you ever lost someone close to you? It can be one of the most isolating experiences you'll experience. Perhaps you've talked about it, perhaps you've puhed the grief down as a way to manage it but never really dealt with it, or even knew where to start. Maybe it's all too fresh you're scared to begin the healing process?
Perhaps you're watching a friend, partner or loved one struggle with grief and feel powerless to help ease the weight of it.
This Saturday, April 21, the first in the Resilence Series of workshops will be held at Windsor Workshop with a focus on grief.
The event focusses on all types of grief, from loss to dealing with illness to supporting freinds and family through major life changes and trauma.

The event is a first of its kind, held for women only and led by a relationship coach, as well as a confidence and life coach.
Participants can contribute as much or as little as they feel comfortable or simply sit back and listen to better understand some methods to help us better understand grief, how it affects us and those around us and how to navigate through these difficult times.
It's an open and supportive space to learn with warmth and humour whilst letting your guard down a little (and having a few cheeky wines).
The series will be held on Saturday April 21st at The Windsor Workshop (Windsor) from 2pm - 5pm.
