2/12/2021 Living change – Grief as an overlooked force of change with Louise Armstrong
For those who are looking to enable a just and regenerative world, it is critical that we find ways to be closing the regenerative cycle. We are comfortable creating the new, but often skirt around the loss, closure, ‘release’ and death phase of change – even though they are an inevitable and necessary part of any change process. It is essential to know how to work with these forces as we continue to adapt to and live during a global pandemic, increasing impacts of climate change and as our regimes and ways of being crumble around us.
This session led by Louise Armstrong offered a series of metaphors and framing that help us to work with grief and loss in a tangible way. We also spent time witnessing and sharing with each other and experiencing the power of grief-tending practices. Due to the intimate nature of the session, there is no recording.
