Griefwalker Roundtable Series
BWELL INTEGRATIVE WELLNESS has teamed up with the Unity Fellowship to present a unique discussion group, focusing on the works of Stephen Jenkinson, Martin Prechtel, Francis Weller and other notables in the field of Grief, Death and Dying.
The Griefwalker documentary introduces us to Jenkinson, leader of a palliative care counseling team at Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital. He has been at the deathbed of well over 1,000 people, and has made it his life’s mission to change the way we die – to turn the act of dying from denial and resistance into an essential part of life.
We will use the film and selected take-home readings in the field of Grief, Death, and Dying as a springboard for discussions about things we rarely have the opportunity to speak upon in public setting. How does our culture view death? How do we consider grief? This discussion will allow us to let some fresh air into some topics that have been stifled by mandatory cheerfulness, and cultural contempt for vulnerability.
Each week, we will take home selected readings, and return to discuss them in an open and respectful space, facilitated by Nala Walla of BWell Integrative Wellness.
We ask that people commit to all 6 sessions, and pay in advance. Weekly payments can be arranged where necessary. Thanks for your interest!
