Writing Through Grief January 12 through March 2, Thursdays 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. Sometimes our heart finds voice through the written word. Writing Through Grief is an 8 week workshop which utilizes writing as a catalyst to attend to and heal grief. Each week a theme is offered, pieces of prose and poetry are read, and prompts are presented to aid in the process of writing. This workshop is open to the community, and everyone is welcome to attend as few or as many weeks as is helpful to them.

Community Arts Gathering When Loneliness Knocks: Finding Your Way Through: Saturday, February 18, 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Sometimes in grief people find themselves alone in their feelings, perceptions, and values. Grief can tinge the world a different color, and it can feel as though no one else sees in the same light. We will have an opportunity to notice where and how we feel lonely and how to ease the sense of loneliness.   To register, call 707-267-9801.
