Learning to Live After Loss

By Luisa Mannu

“Learn through your creativeness how to find and use your inner resources to live fully and wholeheartedly after a loss.”

Loss appears in our lives in many forms - death of a loved one, divorce, break up of a romantic relationship, loss of a job, unmet expectations, moving, to name but a few.

Grief is the natural emotional reaction to any kind of loss which has occurred in our life. Each grief is unique and it impacts our everyday lives in different ways.

  • Have you been experiencing a loss of any kind or are you still struggling for an old one that hurts?

  • Have you lost the sense of your life and you cannot see any light?

  • Is your heart broken and you are feeling overwhelmed by an unbearable pain?

  • Perhaps your loss was an intangible one and you are not even aware that it might be now affecting your life?

  • Or perhaps you know someone who is grieving and you do not know how to help him/her, what to say, how to behave and therefore you feel useless and frustrated?.

In this interactive workshop, through the use of some creative tools, you will learn how to recognise and identify your losses and get to the awareness of what is making you struggle in your life.

You will discover how different losses can be connected and intertwined and what their impact is in your current life. You will be able to unfold the emotional reactions caused by recent and past losses.

How can you learn to live after loss?

There is no curriculum, no protocol, no books to study. But, you can learn it! It’s a creative learning, where your creativeness will show you the way to discover your own resources to live a full and wholehearted life after loss.

The power of our creativeness gives us access to that inner resilience which is often hidden by the overwhelming pain of our grief.
