Loss is a non-negotiable ingredient of our human experience and can visit our lives in many forms, whether through the death of a loved one, unemployment, injury or betrayal. While grief and loss often create a sense of alienation from others it is, paradoxically, a condition we all share. This conversation will explore how grief and loss can impact on our identity, our social roles, our sense of safety and our relationship to meaning and our faith. We will also explore the resilience we sometimes encounter in loss, and how reflection, relationships and communal ritual can foster vitality amidst pain.
