Muslim Grief at The Good Grief Festival

Prayer books

We are all looking forward to The Good Grief Festival at the end of October. Initially planned as a ‘traditional’ conference in early 2020, it is now an online conference running from 30th October to 1st November.

The range of workshops, talks and connections is fantastic.

Have a look at the programme on the Good Grief website

Dr Marta Bolognani, a therapist at The Harbour as well as private practice, is chairing a session on Muslim Grief.

It is free, and online.

Friday 30th October, 09:00 – 09:45

This Grief School event will be a conversation between Muslim professionals who deal with end of life and grief, and a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. What can faith and religion provide during bereavement? What is the importance of rituals? How does culture help or interfere with grief?

We are thrilled that Rizwan Ahmed, Muslim Chaplain at the University of Bristol among many other things, and Dr Sabina Patel, Chief Executive of the Muslim Bereavement Support Service, will be joining this important conversation.

Dr Marta Bolognani will chair this discussion.

Read more about this event and book to attend on The Good Grief website.

We look forward to seeing you there if you can make it.
