Grief Medicine: An Online Gathering for BIPOC

September 19 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

An Online Gathering for Black, Indigenous and People of Color
with Amy Hyun Swart and Satya de la Paz

Sunday, September 19th 2021 4PM – 6:30PM PST

Time Zone Converter – Closed Captioning Provided

Come join us as we ritualize our grief in a circle of compassion to acknowledge, listen to, and tend to the broken heart. Grief and its accompanying emotions like rage and confusion can be overwhelming to process alone. Whether your grief is from surviving the loss of a loved one, a breakup, a life transition, or bearing witness to the calamities of our planet including the multiple pandemics from police violence to COVID-19 over the past year, this gathering is for you. Whatever leads your heart to a place of being broken is enough.

Some of the oldest artifacts known to humankind are from grief rituals, yet in modern times this sacred and necessary space is hard to come by due to our collective discomfort around grief. In this multidimensional experience we will use the power of guided meditation, creative practices, yoga, and group sharing to metabolize our losses and transmute them into a gift for our own hearts and the collective heart of our planet.

Please bring a candle, journal, body oil or lotion, yoga mat, and an object of significance that represents the grief you are holding (if possible).

All registered participants will receive a link to join us via Zoom with their EventBrite confirmation email.
