Abstract The purpose of this research is to explore and interpret the experience of mourning and the process of closure for mothers after the loss of a child. The research is founded in Practical Theology and researched from postmodernity as paradigm with a social constructionistic discourse as epistemological point of departure. Principles underlining Participatory Action Research, as part of a qualitative research method are utilised. The research is informed by using mechanisms of the narrative approach. This correlated well with the principles underlying Participatory Action Research that are operasionalised in the reserach. A "conversation-and-time approach" is formulated in the article to describe a possible pastoral conversational engagement to accompany mothers in mourning.
