How do we hold the enormous state-sanctioned violence against black and brown bodies? How do we turn towards grief with compassion? This is an event for Black, Indigenous and People of Color.
Together, we will explore the various types of grief that may be arising, such as state-sanctioned violence, collective grief, bereavement for the loss of a loved one, grief over all that we expect from our lives that we are currently unable to receive, and anticipatory grief. As we gather in community, we find a sense of belonging in our shared grief, helping to metabolize our losses and transmute them into a gift for our own hearts, and the broken heart of our world.
Come join us as we gather to make room in our lives (and living rooms) to be with what the pandemic and the current uprising in the face of Black Lives Matter is bringing up for us -- much easier to do together than alone! There is so much grief under the surface of what we are experiencing. With the supportive practices of restorative yoga, guided meditation, group sharing, sound healing, and journaling, we can explore this question together.
Please have ready:
- yoga mat
