When & Where

Mar 03, 2024, 3:00 PM – Mar 24, 2024, 5:00 PM

virtual workshop


Our February workshop invites you to move inward and downward, contemplating ideas such as scale and perspective. Our March series considers upward and outward expressions of grief, encouraging us to reflect on movements and growth.

By framing the workshops through the notion of “fieldnotes,” we invite you to consider yourself as a compassionate explorer of your griefscapes and to make descriptive observational notes in response to each of your forays. These notes may take the form of journal entries, poems, prose, maps, drawings, et al.

During each of our 2-hour online gatherings, you are invited to share your fieldnotes (your findings, observations, questions) in response to that week’s  prompt. Then, we will all engage in an additional reflective activity, based on a quotation, image, and/or questions.

At the conclusion of each workshop series, participants are welcome to create - individually or in collaboration with others – a project (writing, drawing, collage, ritual space, nature art, etc.) that speaks to their explorations of the previous weeks.

*This is a Heart-Centered, Trans Inclusive Offering. We welcome all kinds of grief experiences and grievers.
