Are you grieving?

Ellie from Howick

We are back!

Disclaimer: Grief is not limited to huge life tragedies and loss! Your grief could look like: losing a friendship, experiencing a breakup, death, family changes, moving away, changing/losing old parts of yourself, personality changes, or whatever you feel has brought up feelings of loss/disorientation. All flavours and variations of grief are welcome.
___

How do we bravely feel the truth of what is seemingly no longer, while transitioning into living a life honouring the newness in who we are becoming, after experiencing loss? Grief is a rite of passage into reconnection with our soul.

At ‘Glitter in Grief’, you are invited to experience a shift into this awareness as Soul-First Guide, Ellie Bambury, welcomes you into a whole new way of communing with your grief, through cultivating a relationship with your higher self and deeply transforming every relationship in your life.

We only ever grieve that which we authentically care for, right? Yet, sometimes, what we are actually grieving for can get lost in translation. Being able to recognise what gives our lives real substance will inspire us to pursue vibrant new beginnings, with deep holistic awareness.

>>> This event is designed to reignite you with your soul to move through grief with a deeper feeling of love & genuine connection, and ignite your desire to consciously step into the new, fresh way of being your soul is calling you towards.

A taste of what to expect:

> Discover Ellie’s enlightening new paradigm for accessing and expressing genuine feelings

> Explore how developing compassionate boundaries and communication skills helps us to co-create true safety, depth and sincerity in all of our relationships (which is crucial as we move through grief and change!)

> Rekindle your relationship with storytelling: You will have the opportunity to share your story and listen to others share theirs - if you’re not ready to share, then bearing witness to those who are can become a tonic for you.

> Learn how to ‘come home to yourself’

> Play with the future - let’s explore what your soul is calling you towards, as you move through your grief!

And more!

Ellie Bambury Soul-First Guide is here to shift the narrative on how we communicate our genuine feelings and open up a AGE-INCLUSIVE opportunity to connect with Next Level Dreamers from all stages in life. From early teens as young as 12, to Mothers over 20, 30 and 40 as well as the Mature 70, 80, 90 and over! Let’s create truly sincere connections. Discover the glitter hidden in your grief.
