Grief Gathering: Community, Connection, and Ritual

Grief Gathering: Community, Connection, and Ritual
Talking about grief is talking about love because without love, there would be no grief. Coming together in the face of loss to tell our love stories can be a deep and healing experience.

During Grief Gatherings, we will explore how ritual, connection, and community help us through times of loss.

Grief Gathering is an opportunity for those who have experienced loss to find connection through meditation, ritual, and community sharing. Whether you have lost a partner, child, parent, friend, sibling, or pet, you have a story to tell. Whether your loss was recent or a long time ago, your experience is real and personal.. During Grief Gathering, we will recognize the universality of loss even as we seek to honor the uniqueness of each participant's experience of loss.
