From The Ground Up Gathering

I am here to reimagine...

For years after my best friend died at the age of 22, I desperately searched for ways to survive my ongoing grief. My biggest movements forward were during times of vulnerable art making and sharing that artwork with others. Now 20 years later, I have come to discover that I have access to shifting loss in unique ways that I want to share. In 2018, From the Ground Up: A Gathering for Healing Through the Arts was born. Simplified, grief is the overwhelming pain of love unexpressed. What is available from participating in From The Ground UP Gatherings turned Virtual Workshops? ...Unleashing that love through bold conversations, healing by making, releasing and redefining our relationship to expressing our love. I hope you join me & give yourself permission to engage in new conversations for honoring your loss. May you find unexpected gifts throughout your isolation.
