2021, City Parks, Daylongs

Sat. 9/25/2021: Tending Grief in Nature

Date: Saturday, 9/25/2021

Time: 10am-5pm ET

Location: At a city park – Details TBD

Teachers: Peace Twisegye and Lin Wang Gordon

In the past year, many lost loved ones due to Covid-19 or other causes.  Yet the pandemic put barriers into holding many rituals that help us process grief, individually and collectively.  Grief, if not attended, could often hold us hostage to life’s uncertainty and losses.  How do we open our heart and continue to let our life energy flow while facing and tending our grief intimately?  How do we establish a sense of connection with our loved ones when their bodies are no longer here? We will spend this day  outdoors to meditate, to free write, to experiment the elements, to share dreams…we will explore nature-based practices, learn and find support and healing forces in nature as we share a space to mourn and grief.

This daylong is not limited to those who experience human loss but also animal companions.  No prior meditation experience necessary.

COVID protocols: We will remain 6 feet apart in gathering and will wear masks. To prevent in-person transmission, bandanas and loose face covering are not accepted as masks.
