Reconnecting at the melting point

Reconnecting at the melting point: an ongoing blog about the journey of loss through an expressive arts group process.

Struggling with the loss of a loved one can be difficult. This is an ongoing blog about the journey of loss through an expressive arts group process. The process is sharing stories while creating, then allowing parts of conversation to crystalize into written word for further reflective healing. While group is a confidential space, there are occasions when participants collectively agree to make a particular creation or expression public.  This is one of those times.

Reconnecting at the melting point

 

I'm stuck and I want to leave behind guilt.

I want to hold and I can’t.

You know, ummm, you can ask for help even when there isn't enough thread to mend the broken piece.

Well maybe I can.  It just seems so hard to move towards ‘ease’ instead of being in ‘dis-ease’.

Look at that, I can re-melt! 

and take another path towards healing.

 

Thank you to all who take the time to share their process above. This blog was created in response to your request to be able to share your healing process with those who are unable to be present. I thank you and your families for your support and overwhelming kindness.
