Film + Ritual: Grief and Healing for Child Loss

Hosted by Linsey McNew

Film + Ritual: Grief and Healing for Child Loss
A sensory workshop for those who know death and in particular child loss. You'll leave our time together with a greater understanding of the value healthy rituals can bring to the grieving process.

Meet author, therapist and ritual maker, Dr. Christy Bauman and her partner, therapist Andrew Bauman as we view a clip from the duos award-winning short documentary, A Brave Lament. Following a clip from the film, we'll invite folks to participate in a brief conversation with Andrew and Christy. We'll close our time together with Christy guiding the group through modeling rituals she's used to benefit her own grief process. Please note, we will not be watching the entire short documentary. Anyone participating in the workshop is encouraged to view the free film in advance on YouTube:

"A beautiful story of the strength of community and the need for sharing our grief in this world. An important film for anyone who has experienced a loss like this and for those who need to be reminded about the power of supporting others in heartbreak."

"Excellent film. Andrew and Christy's honesty is both painful and healing. In a world that seeks to cover up or escape grief, they press in and what's more, ask their community to press in as well. This is so beautiful. It is a horrible truth that our world desperately needs people who grieve well, but it is true. This film is a great first step for those who want to learn how. I would recommend this to anyone who has a close friend or family member that has walked through significant loss and those that have walked through loss themselves."
