Mindfully Living with Grief and Loss - 11th May 2019 - Borders General Hospital Chaplaincy
A 9-week mindfulness course specifically designed to help you cope with the pain of loss, and embark on a healing journey.
Grief is a natural reaction to loss and the process of mourning that loss can be difficult and stressful. Walking along the heart-breaking path of grief can leave us feeling physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausted.
This secular mindfulness course can help us to navigate the difficult path of grief and cope with loss. Mindfulness enables us to tap into our natural resilience, which in turn helps us to learn and grow through our grief journey. With mindfulness we learn to live in the present moment and examine what we are really thinking and feeling in each moment so that we can heal through loving kindness and compassion.
Mindfulness helps you to be aware of the present moment, instead of ruminating about the past. It involves paying attention to your thoughts and feelings in a way that increases your ability to manage difficult situations and make choices which are more beneficial and advantageous.
