Grief as a mystery teaches us that not every question in life has a straightforward answer, a neat solution, or an expected outcome. Death or loss can teach us about life, when we become intimate with grief .
In “A Holiday with Grief”, an overnight retreat as part of the Tapestries of Grief festival, we invite participants 21 and above to learn to make space for their grief, to relax in the presence of others walking a similar journey, and to listen, understand, appreciate each other without judgement nor goal to achieve anything – to simply be present wherever they are in their grieving and healing journey.
Tapestries of Grief is organised by Grief Matters, a movement by Montfort Care, and is a collaborative effort with 20 healthcare organisations and social service agencies. The festival is held in conjunction with the 2021 Grief and Bereavement Conference organised by Singapore Hospice Council.
*Please note that the arrangements are subject to COVID-19 safe-distancing measures and precautionary regulations during this period. In the event of a change in arrangements, the Grief Matters team will contact all who signed up individually to communicate further. The team will get in touch with the interested participants about the cost of the retreat.
