Tending Our Grief: Community Gathering 

Tuesday December 19, 7:15-9:15pm at YOGA SOUP

As the summer solstice and winter holidays approach, we have all been impacted by the fires in Southern California, some of us have lost our homes, others are still at risk, and all of us have had our sense of safety and predictability shaken. During these times it is important to come together. Grief and sorrow are givens in this life, a natural part of the human experience, meant to be experienced with others, communally not in isolation. Grief is intimately connected to our love and gratitude and can deepen us if we allow it. This is an opportunity to honor our personal and collective grief ~ with regards to the fires, ancestral grief, trauma, the sorrows of the world, places in ourselves that have not known love, what we expected and did not receive, and the reality that everything we love, we will lose ~ it is all welcome. 

Offered by Alexis Slutzky and team. 

By donation ~ all donations will be given to Red Cross and other Thomas fire organizations to support folks directly impacted by the fires.
