When & Where
Mar 21, 2024, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Portland, 4800 NE Simpson St, Portland, OR 97218, USA
The Portland Grief House invites you to join The Lost Table. A table that is resilient, strong and safe to share our grief from all kinds of loss loss. Take a seat, bring a dish and feel free to share your heart in good company. How do you deal with your grief when you are struggling to understand it? Sometimes grief needs community and food.
At this gathering we'll each take a few minutes to spill our giref in whatever way feels right. We might talk about an experience that happened or is happening, that are missing or out-staying their welcome. When one of us is making their offering the rest will listen. We'll save a little time at the end of our gathering to thank each other and talk a bit, but won't interrupt or interject during spilling time.
In the hopes of offering more people time to talk and be heard meaningfully, we'll be breaking into a few smaller groups of 5 or so people for sharing. Our schedule for the evening will look a little something like this:
6 - 6:15(ish) - gather, be welcomed, serve yourself food, chat with people you've met at Lost Table before, introduce yourself to new people.
6:15 - 7:15(ish) - settle around a small table and share your stories, memories and feelings plus photos drawings - whatever feels important.
7:15 - 7:45(ish) - stetch your legs, get more food, chat and mingle.
7:45 - 8:00(ish) - Clean up, gather your things, exchange information as you're called to.
8:00 - goodbyes.
- a dish to share with serving utensils
- dinner ware for yourself (plate, bowl, spoon, fork, napkin)
- beverage for yourself
