Journey Through Loss: Exploring Grief and Loss Through the Archetype of the Labyrinth

The labyrinth is an ancient archetype that has been a part of cultures throughout the world since antiquity, often representing the idea of journey. We all experience grief and loss in life, from the time we leave the nurture of the womb to the leaving of our body at the end of our life, with many other losses, small and large, along the way. Our American society has shied away from healthy grief in favor of quick fixes, leaving many with unresolved grief lingering in silence just below the surface waiting for a chance to be heard. The labyrinth provides a safe container to journey with your loss.

In this workshop, you’ll be introduced to the archetype of the labyrinth as one tool to journey with your own losses in combination with written expression. Using both the metaphor of the labyrinth journey and physically walking a labyrinth, participants will be given opportunities to give voice to losses in their life through poetry and open writing reflections.
