The Grief Centre of Western Australia is holding a six-week workshop to facilitate the process of moving forward from grief, Thursday mornings from both 10:30am to 12:30pm and 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
This workshop offers practical tools, inspiration and guidance for the process of transitioning from grief to more inner peace, contentment and joy. We will use writing to explore possibilities of renewal and positive change. Writing is a powerful pathway that offers validation, clarity, self-understanding and increased well-being. The kind of writing entered into is for you personally and does not require any prior knowledge or the need to share your words with anyone.
The workshop is offered in small groups in order to provide a safe, sensitive and supportive space.
Your facilitator is Katrin Den Elzen (PhD), who has personally experienced the transitioning from grief to rebuilding a new life following the death of her young husband after a prolonged and traumatic illness. Writing helped Katrin to work through grief and trauma, and she has written a memoir about her experiences of young widowhood. Katrin is an experienced group facilitator who also teaches writing for recovery and renewal at Murdoch University for the Graduate Diploma in Counselling.
Cost: $ 130; $ 100 (concession).

The Banking and Bereavement seminar is a practical money guide to the do’s and don’ts before and after someone dies.
We have witnessed too often individuals and families who have had their grief compounded by dealing with the insensitivity of staff and others. This can be especially difficult around the cold, hard facts of policies and procedures, after the death of someone they loved. Despite the most tragic of circumstances people are expected to meet the demands of paperwork in a certain manner and time frame.
From our experiences, we know how difficult it can be to move forward with your life until these heart aching tasks have been completed. This information session will provide you with tips to ensure you are best prepared for the Government, Banks, Superannuation providers and Insurance companies once someone has died.
This will ensure that after death, your time can be spent with loved ones, not completing unnecessary paperwork. This practical guide will give you peace of mind, control, and clarity.
There is no need to wait until someone dies to act. Protect you and your family BEFORE and prepare your family for the unimaginable.
The Grief Centre of Western Australia and Donna Lee Powell invite you to come along and join them for this free event and find out ways to be better prepared.
Recomposing New Beginnings
Saturday December 1st, 10am-3:30pm
You are invited to explore the new modality of ‘Compositionwork’ in a workshop at the Grief Centre of Western Australia, on Saturday, 1st December, from 10am- 3.30pm.
Compositionwork is a contemplative creative coaching method to explore the richness of our inner world. It is a transformative tool for renewal and positive change for anyone who wants to gain clarity and deepen self-understanding. The modality is particularly useful for people who may be transitioning into a new identity as a result of personal or professional changes in their lives. Those in search of personal meaning after the death of a loved one will especially benefit from Compositionwork. The artistic way of working allows creative experimentation and symbolic expression that often reveals meanings and experiences that go beyond words and deepens emotion-awareness.
Your facilitator is Katrin Den Elzen (PhD), who has personally experienced transitioning from grief to rebuilding a new life following the death of her young husband after a prolonged illness. Writing and symbolic inner landscape work helped Katrin to work through this trauma, and has written a memoir about her experience of young widowhood. Katrin is an experienced group facilitator who also teaches writing for recovery and renewal at Murdoch University for the Graduate Diploma in Counselling.
Cost: $100; $75 (concession).
