In the heart of spring, we turn our attention to the grief we carry for self, community, and world. Turning over these sorrows allows them to compost into fertile soil. Sharing our deep emotional selves brings us into the circle of restoration, into the arms of the sacred. Utilizing the potent tools of writing practice, singing, and ritual, we will build a community of concerned hearts and coax our stories of loss and suffering into the visible world. This soul activism is what we are called to in this extreme time.
This gathering will include:
