Creative Arts Gathering  Perspective: The Art of Expanding One’s Vision
Saturday, April 21, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Sometimes how we encounter our experience is more telling than what experience we encounter.  When grief arrives in our lives, it is seldom welcome.  Yet how we approach grief influences what we experience.  We cannot choose whether grief will visit us or not.  We can choose how we wish to approach and move through it.  Through exploring an array of alternative perspectives, there will be an opportunity to contemplate which perspective is the most healing for each of us.  No artistic experience is necessary.
