Grief Tending Supervision Group
An Ongoing Supervision & Support Group for Politicized Grief Tenders
Holding space for sorrow and change can be both beautiful and lonely, nourishing and tiring. This ongoing, small supervision group is meant to be a place of support and care for politicized grief tenders. A place we can share our hearts and medicine. A place to witness and be witnessed.
We will meet on zoom once a month for 90 minutes. There will also be an online group space to check-in and ask for support between sessions. Most weeks, we’ll start with poetry and check-ins, then short teaching or resource sharing. We’ll then witness and heart-storm with one another about one-on-one work or events we’re facilitating. Each session one or two people will get some in-depth feedback about an event or client they’re working with.
This is an ongoing container of participation and mutual care. Each member is asked to show up regularly. As such, the minimum commitment is three months with 1-month notice before leaving. The hope is that we have a steady group of 4-8 participants for an extended period of time. During our live sessions, you will need a stable internet connection and relatively quiet space where you can connect with yourself and others with your camera on.
