About the Event
We are approaching the Holiday season, which inevitably can resurface grief within ourselves
and the narratives that accompany its wild untamed nature.
Even though we desire the communal joy of The Holidays, it can pull heavily on our heart
strings as we feel into rising emotions such as loss, sadness, longing, isolation,
misunderstanding, and much more. Grief is a universal experience. You don’t have to suffer
and journey through it alone, especially during The Holidays.
“Communal grieving offers something that we cannot get when we grieve by ourselves. Through validation, acknowledgement and witnessing, communal grieving allows us to experience a level of healing that is deeply and profoundly freeing.” ~ Sobonfu Some
It is my heart’s desire that this creative deep dive will enter your heart and encourage you to
keep leaning in and to optimize the sacredness of grief in your personal journey through
expressive arts modalities that reach beyond words. We will co-create a life raft that will offer
you support, self-healing tools, and community. You may even find these resources and
techniques as a source of continued healing and upliftment moving forward.
This program is a six-week online creative grief support experience. The container will be a
maximum of 8 participants. The small group journey will keep our sacred circle intimate and
spacious each time we gather. We will meet once a week to connect, to share, to educate
ourselves, and to support one another as we navigate all that comes with The Holidays season.
