Carmen Wilde

"The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain." –Kahlil Gibran

Group Sessions

"It is essential for us to welcome our grief, whatever form it takes.  When we do, we open ourselves to our shared experiences in life.  Grief is our common bond.  Opening to our sorrow connects us to everyone, everywhere. 
It is sacred work."
— Francis Weller


Story Medicine

Tuesday evenings 7:00 - 9:00PM
March 13 - May 1, 2018

Every one of us is walking through the world carrying the heaviness of grief and very few of us have a place to take it. Story Medicine is an 8-week group designed to give people a safe and welcoming space to honour and tend to their sorrows. Grief enters our lives in many ways: divorce, miscarriage, the loss of an important relationship, the death of a loved one. Whatever sorrow you are carrying, this space was created for you. We will explore ways to give grief the attention it is asking for and have the opportunity for it to be witnessed and held by others. Please get in touch if you would like to learn more about this offering. 



It is difficult to put into words how healthful it was and has been to take part in Carmen Wilde’s grief group sessions. It may sound like a heavy topic, but I found that speaking about and greeting the sadness that cycled around inside me actually lifted a great weight and allowed new energy to come through.   

Carmen’s group is a safe place to speak and be yourself, something I think we all need but I have learned can be scarce. I felt cared for, supported and heard not only by Carmen but all of the people in the group. Doing this with other people made a big, positive difference to the experience. The sessions improved my emotional, mental and physical health. I continue many of the simple, thoughtful practices Carmen offered to us. For me it is both healing and strengthening.

I cannot think of a man or woman who wouldn’t benefit from taking part in this group, with Carmen to help you care for yourself.
