TOUR OF FAR North Queensland

TOUR OF FAR NORTH QUEENSLAND!

Queensland!

Leaving tomorrow for my grand adventure traveling though far North Queensland running Healing Power of Story workshops for the fabulous Queensland Writers Centre.

Telling our Stories to the WORLD! I am passionate about Queensland writers and Queensland stories and looking forward to meeting many new writers in the far flung reaches of our enormous and beautiful state.

My father’s family were early settlers in Innisfail and I spent many happy days running wild on the family cane farm and exploring the glorious tropical beaches and freezing cold waterfalls. I love it up there. I’ve travelled far and wide trying to find beauty that equals it. Happy to report – I never have.

THE GIFTS OF GRIEF.

Grief is like births in many ways. The first is usually the hardest.

By the time I’d lost the third member of my immediate family, I knew what to expect. It didn’t make the pain any less, or the process any easier.

I learnt a lot though. Everything I’ve learnt about grief, how it works and how you can help yourself feel even a little bit better, I’ve put into my book – A Guide Through Grief – First Aid for Your Heart and Soul.

A few years ago I had a piece from it published through UPLIFT CONNECT.

The Gifts of Grief. You can read it HERE

Because grief is a gift. A terrible, awful gift we are all given at some point in our lives.

I hope my stories bring you comfort.

If you live in Brisbane come along to my MOVING THROUGH GRIEF workshop this Sunday 22 November at the Relaxation Centre in Alderley. Only $25! 

Whether you’re grieving the loss of a person, a dog, a job, a marriage, or if you’re just struggling to stay afloat during this crazy mess of a year, this workshop will help.

Lots of love, 

Edwina
