Herbs and Practices for Supporting Grief
Date: Sunday, July 21, 9:00am - 11:00am
This class will explore the modern approaches for managing grief and the effect these have had on the heart and soul of our culture. We will begin to ask the question “what does our grief ask of us” and learn the practices necessary to fully feel our grief and to support our friends and family in times of suffering. We will explore herbal allies that support the body systems affected as well as other practices that create space for the feelings of grief in our life. This class is a welcoming space for people who are grieving, people who work with those suffering grief and anyone who may, someday, experience grief in their life. This class will be a safe space with room for both tears and laughter; sometimes at the same time.
