About The Event
Many of us have been socialized to deny our grief or grieve in private. In so many ways, dominant culture pushes us to “be positive.” Dominant culture doesn’t want us to know how to feel; if we did, we would not accept the level of harm and dis-ease that our culture produces. As a result of this push to be positive, we bypass what needs our attention. We are living in a time of great grieving. Some if not most of us are carrying grief that needs expression and healing in community. Our ability to grieve is a testament to our capacity both individually and as a community.
Everything Belongs is a four-part series focused on collectively learning to love our grief. During our sessions, we will explore what each of us is currently grieving, what we are collectively grieving, the relationship between love and grief, and move through practices meant to support us in honoring our grief.
These sessions will include meditation, ritual, reflection, and small and large group community building. Please bring a journal and anything else that would help you feel supported.
