Creative Arts Gathering  The Physical Side of Grief
Saturday, July 20, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Grief impacts our whole self. In emotional, social, spiritual, and physical ways, grief arrives. Physically, there are often disruptions in eating, sleeping, relaxing, or moving. Often, grief is felt residing in one area of our body or another. We will take time to notice and attend to this side of grief, allowing our bodies to be heard and nurtured, in order to support its ability to release the pain of loss.
Space is limited, please call to register: Julia D. or Gretchen at 707-267-9801

Creative Arts Gathering  Finding Peace in the Midst of Uncertainty
Saturday, August 17, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
When someone we love dies, what we may have assumed to be certain, such as the permanence of our relationship, suddenly becomes uncertain. The unthinkable has happened and for a time nothing feels solid. This uncertainty can bring forth feelings of fear, anxiety, and worry. We will gently step into this land of ambiguity to search for a sense of peace even as uncertainty continues.
Space is limited, please call to register: Julia D. or Gretchen at 707-267-9801
