Collective Remembrance Tapestry: Through journaling, movement and storytelling we will give voice to what is deep within our bones. To speak is to birth and materialize our inner wisdom. The reverberation of our stories and memories can heal what needs mending. It's a soothing balm for times of grief. Together, participants will weave a tapestry of words that will serve as affirmation, grief medicine, a wish for the future while connecting us with our ancestral roots.
