Nourish Your Grief
4-week Virtual Workshop Series with Geneviève 

​What does it mean to  Nourish Your Grief?

Nourishing our grief is to provide the space and time to honour our experience of loss. Through deepening our knowledge of grief, we gain insight into the many ways grief impacts our wellbeing - mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. How can we offer ourselves the nourishing tools and environment to help us move through loss?

If you are...

  • grieving a loss (recent or past)

  • feeling confused about how grief is affecting you

  • seeking a deeper understanding of grief and loss

  • looking for some tools to help you cope with grief

Then this series may be a place of refuge and healing. These educational and experiential sessions are an opportunity to explore your journey through grief in a safe, compassionate space and develop some tools to nourish your grief.

Description

This 4-week workshop series will be led by Geneviève Brûlé, naturopathic doctor, yoga & meditation teacher, and fellow griever. The workshops will explore a variety of grief & loss topics, as well as healing & coping tools that can help support you through a time of change or loss.

 

Grief is a difficult, yet very significant reality of life. It is common to feel overwhelmed, lost or confused through the grieving process. You are not alone and Geneviève's hope is that this series offers some guidance and a place of healing and connection. Learning how to move through our own individual, unique grieving style can be deeply healing. Through a little guidance, education and self-exploration you can begin to actively engage with your grief to facilitate deeper healing and ultimately find peace.​

About Geneviève

 

I am a licensed naturopathic doctor and yoga teacher practicing mianly through my home-based clinic, Nourish Wellness Clinic, in Cloverdale, BC. In my practice, I use naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, counselling, breathwork, mindfulness and yoga to support patients on their healing journey. My approach is trauma-informed and focuses on the mind, body, soul connection.

I came to do grief work after multiple losses  - the most significant being the loss of my beautiful mother, Suzanne and a miscarriage. Since the passing of my mother in 2014 I have deepened my knowledge in the grief space through continuing education, grief research, books and working with patients. I offer one-on-one consults for grief support, however have recently felt called to create a community for grief and loss education and support.
