Grief is a complex process with many feelings that continues over many years. Join us as we find our fierce courage and self-compassion, through deep listening. As our hearts soften, we will develop a deeper connection with ourselves and our grief. In this workshop, we will use mindfulness practices, singing, music listening, song discussion, and songwriting to help us experience and process our grief, and move us into a more expanded view of ourselves. You will learn how to move forward on your “Hero’s Journey,” with tools and a sense of community support.
Register for either workshop above.
You will receive an email response with all the details when you register.
