You are invited to join for an afternoon gathering of shared grief and shared praise.
4th November and 16th of December
The Aching Heart is offered as a chance to come together, to bear witness to what is happening in our midst and to practice the skills of grief, praise and brokenheartedness.
Our afternoon will be spent sharing and listening. We will speak both to the losses and sorrows that have visited our lives and this wonderful web of life upon which we all depend, as well as the incredible wonder and gift of being alive.
We will gather just before 12 noon and share something to eat together before we sit together.
“What does it take to stand quietly like somebody under a clear midnight sky, taking it all in? Things going well doesn’t seem to help with this. Good fortune isn’t pervasive on this matter and it rarely gives us pause. It’s when the news isn’t good news, that’s usually the time you find the limits of what you can bear to know.” – Stephen Jenkinson
Aching Heart Days were first offered by Harry Kloser-Pitcher in Vienna and our thanks goes to him for gifting the name and reminding us of the neediness of good grieving in these times.
