Seasons

22nd March 2017

Seasons Funerals in kentIt’s a beautiful time of the year, as we see one season end and another one begins. Yesterday on a walk we took this picture, struck by how it captures the two seasons side by side. In the background is a tree, yet to blossom. In the foreground is a sign of spring – the daffodil. So often, grief is its own difficult and dark season with no sign of ending, but at some point during that season there will begin to be signs of a new season beginning. Often, those two seasons will overlap considerably or even live in parallel for a while and it can be very confusing to live through. There’ll be days when you’ll feel both – the winter and the spring. As we grieve, there is something about observing the pattern of the seasons and how seasons come and go, begin and end, that can be a comfort and speak to us.

This is a lovely article showing that the clergy are also adapting positively and creatively to this terrible situation. We need to change our rituals to stay safe but this doesn’t necessarily mean that they are any less healing. Those who are willing to accept some changes are able to continue to hold truly personal and meaningful funeral ceremonies. We are working with each family individually to find new ways of doing things to bring them comfort in their unique situation. It can be done ♥️

Grief during coronavirus - lockdown is particularly tough when you're grieving. Being surrounded by family and friends is so vital when you've lost someone you love. Hopefully you are still able to stay connected to others in some way, If you are struggling - some telephone/video grief counselling might help. It's difficult to 'unload' dark feelings onto family and friends, particularly those who might also be grieving, but it does really help to talk.

My thoughts on funerals through coronavirus on NBC. We are often told that we only have once chance to say goodbye to and honour our loved ones.... I think we can look at this differently, and learn to hold rituals in other ways than we are used to, particularly during these times. They can still be healing. ... See MoreSee Less
