Dying Matters Week 2023

Posted on: 4th May 2023

Every year in May, the National Dying Matters Coalition encourages local communities to get people more active in planning and supporting each other in times of bereavement. Dying Matters Week 2023 in West Leeds has been organised by Full Circle Funerals, and we at Leeds Sanctuary are glad to partner with them in offering “A Creative Space to explore Grief”.

We believe that the process of grieving, though tough emotionally, is also incredibly valuable as a means of emotional release and healing. It can also be part of creating deeper connections with others who are also processing loss. 

Our interactive retreat space will be held at Headingley Methodist Church on Thursday 11 May from 3pm – 6pm, where you can work your way through a series of five stations exploring the process of grief. There will be a range of creative methods such as memorial making, art reflection, and spoken word meditation. We encourage you to reflect on your own experiences and beliefs around dying, death, and loss, and we suggest you allow around an hour to visit all the stations. Refreshments will be available, and the church and gardens will also be open for private meditation.
