When Normal Goes Away: Gathering Our Stories of Loss - (A Four-Part Series) - VIRTUAL!
Facilitator: Lisa Prantl and Pam Temple
Date: 02-11-2021 to 03-25-2021
Time: 6:30 pm ET to 9:00 pm ET
Open to: All Genders 18+
**This series is full. We have added a Monday afternoon series (with the same facilitators and content) that begins February 8.**
We feel the world has changed, and it has. We are navigating extraordinary losses, personally and globally...grieving in layers, individually and collectively. We are not used to this kind of daily collective grief. What layers of grief are surfacing for you now...
- Loss of momentum in your career or education, gathering together, security, hugs
- Any loss you identify as being deeply part of you -- especially if it's never been acknowledged or feels "taboo"
- Illnesses or deaths of people or pets, prior to or during the pandemic
- Other reasons to mourn now
In this class, we will use writing prompts, poems, and readings to encourage deep engagement and creativity surrounding loss, while exploring the varied aspects of grief. You may share your writing, if you like, in this safe, respectful, virtual space with a community of people who listen, support, encourage, and inspire. How might you write yourself anew and move forward through uncertain times?
Four-Part Series: Alternating Thursdays: February 11 and 25, March 11 and 25
**Please note that these sessions will be held via Zoom online conferencing. Your facilitator will provide specific details regarding this online community prior to the classes.**
