Journeying with Grief ~ A 5 Week Series

Join Kate Fontana for this 5 weeks series.

Oftentimes, grief can appear so enormous and overwhelming that we do all we can to hold it out. It can also be a deeply isolating experience, and none of us can truly know the true nature of grief each other carries. Consider, though, that when we create a strong enough container within ourselves and our community, we can actually let grief flow.  Consider too that, though we cannot do much to alleviate the grief of another, we can walk with each other on parallel paths through grief.

In this 5-week series, we will practice just that–supporting and nourishing each other in entering into our own places of grief with courage, kindness, self-acceptance and connection to deeper resources. Weekly gatherings will be a mixture of meditation, gentle movement, readings, journaling, creativity, singing, interspiritual prayer and conversation. You will not be asked or required to share any details of your particular experience of grief or loss; however you will have the option to share in general about your experience and how you are processing. Register here.

Please note: this is not a replacement for psychotherapy or medical treatment.

Space is limited to a maximum of 12 participants. 2 Half Price Scholarships available.

Date:  Tuesday, February 13th – March 13th, 6:00 – 7:30pm

Location: University Place Studio

MindfulMarch ~ A Donation Based LoveYourBrain Friendly Yoga Class

Join Shari for this gentle Love Your Brain Friendly yoga class.

“In honor of Brain Injury Awareness Month, join us for MindfulMarch to increase awareness of Traumatic Brain Injury and the healing benefits of yoga and meditation. 100% of proceeds directly support people with TBI and their caregivers through our Yoga program.“

The LoveYourBrain Foundation (LYB) is a non-profit that improves the quality of life of people affected by traumatic brain injury and raises awareness about the importance of brain health. Guided by their family’s experience, LYB was established by brothers, Adam and Kevin Pearce, following Kevin’s severe TBI from a snowboarding accident prior to the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Kevin’s remarkable resilience was documented and transformed into the award winning HBO Documentary, “The Crash Reel,” which brought light to the experience of TBIs.

The LoveYourBrain Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. EIN# 47-1189803

Donations can be made through the studio or directly through the fundraising page.

Date:  Saturday, March 3rd
