This hands-on workshop offers a safe, non-judgmental environment using meditation, collage-making, expressive drawing, self-reflective writing and group discussion to work with loss and grief in your life.  (No art experience needed)

When you experience loss, whether it be the death of a loved one, loss of health, divorce, death of a beloved pet, youth, a job, or unresolved grief from your past, art-making can be a creative way of focusing on, expressing and working with those losses.

      • Express your grief creatively
      • Learn constructive ways to work with loss & grief
      • Develop greater insight and compassion for yourself and others

Giving expression and honoring the sorrows as well as the joys of life can open you to a deeper authenticity where compassion for yourself and others naturally occurs, helping you to find jewels hidden in the well of grief. Click here to see our Loss and Grief page
