Loss is our common human experience. It’s hard. It feels like our hearts are shattered or we are drowning at sea. Without our loved one we are lost, without an anchor. We need to learn how to navigate this time and find solace and healing. Our reactions to this loss take the shape of our unique version of grief.
What is your grief like? It’s not only the tears, or the anger, but also the changes to our thoughts; perhaps lots of unanswered questions. It’s the experience of profound loneliness. We might have no energy, or get sick. Maybe even eat or drink too much, or not enough. There are no set rules to grief; no ‘shoulds’. Importantly, we need to locate a smorgasbord of ‘things’ that become a balm for our wound. What helps you the most?
One thing that may be of assistance to us is ritual; in either a public or personal way. A ritual is an intentional time, set aside, to purposefully and meaningfully, reflect, remember, honour and celebrate our loved ones who have died. These rituals can include music, poems, candles, letter writing, balloons, tree planting, drawings, and reconnecting with the person who no longer physically remains, but is always with us in love and spirit.
The Sunshine Coast Community Hospice warmly invites you, family members and friends to ‘Reflect, Remember & Celebrate’ on Saturday 26th October 2013, for 5pm start at Katie Rose Hospice, 855 Eumundi-Noosa Road, Doonan. If you wish, please bring along a memento or photograph. Music will be lovingly performed by Annie Owens. Come prepared for the unpredictable Queensland weather. Refreshments will be provided after the service.
