Creative Arts Gathering  Searching for Grace in the Company of Grief
Saturday, March 21, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Grace is an elusive term, meaning different things to different people. In grief, grace may be granting oneself permission to feel how you feel, it may be self-forgiveness, it may be a letting go of judgement or an epiphany of completion or surrender.  Whatever your definition, we will have the opportunity to invite this essence into our work to more easily lean into its comfort and wisdom.
Space is limited, please call to register: Julia D. or Gretchen at 707-267-9801

Creative Arts Gathering  Stumbling Blocks in the Path Toward Healing
Saturday, April 18, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Many things can get in the way of healing grief.  A lack of time or space, an urging from others to “get over it”, our own need to distract ourselves from the pain of loss through whatever means we have… and more.  Noticing what blocks our path offers room to reconsider our route through grief. Once noticed, we have the option to address whatever might be hindering our journey and consider different ways forward.
Space is limited, please call to register: Julia D. or Gretchen at 707-267-9801
