The Poetics of Loss


Dariane Pictet


Loss presents us with a shattering of the delicate balance we have struck between the fierceness and beauty of existence. Poetic imagery dissolves the lonely tears of loss and reconnect us to the immediacy of shared experience Drawing on poems from Rumi, Mary Oliver, Rilke among others, Dariane Pictet will explore how bereavement can become a gateway to Jung’s process of individuation.
