Holding Space with Claire Bidwell Smith and Tembi Locke

Hosted by Reimagine

Join Claire Bidwell Smith, a best-selling author, and Tembi Locke, actress and author, in an exploration about our collective grief and anxiety. The session will include small group discussions.

This is a unique time in our world for people who are experiencing grief and loss on many different levels. As a therapist who has specialized in grief and anxiety for over a decade, I hope to use the knowledge and tools I have amassed to help others who are struggling. These weekly discussions are open to anyone who wants to join, and each week I'll be bringing on a special guest to help explore our collective grief and anxiety. We will offer coping tools and techniques and take live questions from participants. If you can't make it to the call you will receive a recording.

After the discussion, we'll break people up into small breakout rooms to continue the conversation.
