Community Arts Gathering  Managing Emptiness
Saturday, October 14, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Empty time, empty space, and feelings of physical, emotional, and spiritual emptiness can arise in grief. Rather than expansive and freeing, this emptiness is uncomfortable, unwelcome, and often painful. It can bring forth restlessness, agitation, fear, and confusion. It can be lonely and seem unending. Through attention, consciousness, and kind planning, we will explore methods to ease the experience of emptiness.
For more information or to register, call Julie D. or Gretchen at 707-267-9801
