You’re Invited to Join Me!
This year I have the privilege of participating in Stanford’s Applied Compassion Academy.
As part of the program, I’ve been charged with creating a capstone project and have chosen to create an opportunity for us to come together and discover how compassion can change how we live our lives after loss.
Please join me this July for a writing workshop designed to turn towards our suffering with grace and compassion.
Too often, our culture freezes in the face of grief. We’re told to master five steps, move through milestones, and muscle through to the other side. What if we don’t have to arrive buttoned up and whole? In this 90-minute interactive workshop you’ll explore how self-compassion can help us live more fully after loss. Together, we’ll draw from the wisdom of other grief writers. You’ll embark on exercises of free-writing, list-making, and poems to explore new ways to honor our pain, our healing, and ourselves as we carry on. Designed for writers of all skill levels. Sense of humor welcome.
Together, we will …
Explore how self-compassion helps us integrate grief into life after loss
Reflect on where we get stuck when offering compassion to our grief experiences
Create new mantras when the suffering becomes overwhelming
You’ll have the option to share your work in a collection of pieces created during our time together for a showcase that will be shared both on this blog and on my Instagram to change how we talk about our own suffering in the face of grief.
Workshops are held on Zoom
Cost: $45 (I don’t want cost to be a barrier. Email me if you need scholarship assistance.)
Choose from two dates – Saturday, July 24th at 10 am MST or Thursday, July 29th at 6:30 pm MST
