“Anyone who has lost something they thought was theirs forever finally comes to realize that nothing really belongs to them.” - Paulo Coelho
During Living with Loss: A Gathering for the Grieving, we will explore how ritual, connection, and community help us through times of loss.
This gathering is an opportunity for those who have experienced loss to find connection through meditation, ritual, and community sharing. Grief can arise from the loss of a loved one, the loss of a dream, the loss of a relationship, the loss of health, or the loss of a future one imagined. Whether your loss was recent or a long time ago, your experience is real and personal and part of your experience of being alive.
At Living with Loss, we recognize the universality of loss even as we seek to honor the uniqueness of each participant's experience of loss.
Whether two or ten of us gather, we can be community for each other. “One of the most important things you can do on this earth is to let people know they are not alone.” ~ Shannon L. Alder
