Monday, October 28
Activities will include a brief presentation on the history of rituals, a "gallery" tour of ritual examples, and exercises to guide crafting and artistic expression of participants' rituals on cotton canvases (e.g., collages, hand-written poetry, drawing). The workshop will end with a collective observation/appreciation of the canvases along with concluding remarks and a poem.
Participants will leave the workshop with a canvas visually representing the ritual they intentionally designed for a significant person. The workshop will be facilitated by UCSF medical students interested in psychiatry, palliative care, and health humanities.
