Join us for a 4-week small group experience of creative journaling, movement, and art to address your own loss and grief.
Grief and sorrow are streams that flow through all lives…sometimes it is a full flood and overwhelming; other times, a mere trickle in the background. But either way, grief calls on us to develop self-compassion, surrender and resilience.
For centuries, we’ve known that creative expression—writing, music, movement, art—has helped people heal and provided solace. Join us for an 4-week small group experience of creative journaling, movement and art to address your own loss and grief.
*Learn numerous approaches to journaling including: listing, expressive movement on paper, free-associative writing, dialoging and more
*Learn to incorporate music, movement and color into your writing for the purpose of deepening your healing and self-compassion
*No experience needed
*What you will need: lots of blank paper, pen, pencil, markers or crayons; if you have large sheets of inexpensive paper like newsprint, that’s great but not necessary
While this is not a therapy group, we hope it will prove therapeutic! If you are comfortable sharing your vulnerability and that of others, this process may bring up more feelings while being ultimately liberating.
Tuesdays in October
1:00 - 2:30 PM
ONLINE VIA ZOOM
