Drum Your Grief Sessions – 2019

Drum Your Grief

The voice of the drum, like a heartbeat, speaks many languages—including the language of loss—and reminds us that we are not alone. Drumming together allows us to share our experiences and wisdom about grief and loss with others on the same path, and to move forward on the road to hope.

You may choose to bring your own drum, or use one of the drums provided. All are welcome.

Grief and loss can take many forms: whether we are experiencing the loss of a loved one, a job, our health or our sense of identity, we can be left with feelings of sadness, fear, guilt, relief or isolation. It is important to know that we are not alone and that grief is a normal part of living.

In this eight-week series of conversations and guided meditations, participants are invited to share their learnings and wisdom about grief, loss and hope with one another. All are welcome.

Embracing Grief Sessions – 2019

Two convenient sessions to choose from – starting February 21st, or April 4th .

Embracing Grief

We are all grief stricken at times in our lives. The loss of loved ones, a job, or an accident, a major change in life, even dealing with our identity can cause us to grieve. As unique as we are—and though we all grieve differently—it is often suggested that we do so with others who can support our journey, understand us, and help guide us through these challenging times.

We can’t always control what happens in life, or get to choose the outcome. However, we can choose how we respond to the experiences that throw us off our course. This programme is designed to help us cope with loss—of any kind. This six-week series help you find coping strategies to manoeuvre difficult times, and provide you with some support and hope you might need along the way.

We share a lot. We find solace in silence and meditation. And we encourage the expression of ourselves through artistic and creative avenues. We listen. At times we sing. We often give hugs! We are here to support, and to help you through these difficult times. Please join us!

THE 8 STEP PROGRAMME
1. What happened?
2. Why me?
3. Okay, now take a deep breath…
4. Movement, how to cope
5. Strategies, reaching out, and reaching beyond
6. Light, beauty, renewal
7. There’s hope! Transformation, and the road ahead!
8. Awakening, connecting, and belonging. We celebrate our time together with a pot luck feast.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Registration covers all six Thursday evening sessions listed below. The fee of $20.00 per session (for a total of $120.00) helps cover the cost of art supplies and leadership. However, we try to ensure that financial hardship will not be an obstacle to participation. Please contact Judy Coffin (info@ora-mtl.org) for more information.

“In doing, we become”

From Whom am I led? To Whom do I Serve?

Vivianne will give a glimpse into the journey of where her personal life intersects with her professional life – And in so doing – her spirituality is defined as a political statement. She believes in the power of converging art with spirituality, and that such power has the capacity to bring about transformation: within oneself, and also help build and develop sustainable, healthy communities.

Vivianne LaRiviere

Vivianne holds a Master of Pastoral Studies, a Master of Theological Studies, and is in the final stages of thesis writing for a Doctorate of Ministry. (Practical theology).

  • Service Leader: Rev. Heather Fraser Fawcett
