I’m honoured to have you join May ‘We All Heal 2020 – Grief in Isolation’, our mindfulness-based conscious way to give your heart and soul the space to focus on grieving and healing.
This is already the 6th time we will be running May We All Heal (MWAH). You can read more about its origin here.
Thank yourself for being here. Even if you’ve been part of MWAH previously, take a few minutes to read about this year’s event, the possible alternatives to choose from and the most important details.
This year’s event theme: Grief in Isolation
The theme for MWAH 2020 is obviously leaning in on the worldwide topic of social distancing, quarantine — the isolation brought into the world by current events due to COVID19 pandemic situation we find ourselves in. Our last community-written book project Surviving My First Year of Child Loss: Personal Stories from Grieving Parents and the challenges parents faced within their first year of grief would probably look different today than what they looked like a few years ago.
Working with clients in my role as a grief recovery therapist, I hear how the current situation is affecting them, personally and individually, or as a couple with their grief and – to my delight -, there is a lot of relief experienced by bereaved parents as they now have more chances to look after themselves and are allowed to be following their own agenda. Again, the importance of self-care in grieving, in order to grieve in a healthy way.
