The Mystery of Grief: Writing into the Loss
A five-week class on 2/15, 2/22, 3/1, 3/8, 3/15
When we lose loved ones, writing can be a powerful tool for helping us remember them, helping us re-encounter the world without them, and helping us re-know ourselves as the loss transforms us. In this five-week exploration, we’ll use poetry to help us open our hearts, to lean deeper into paradox, to dance with uncertainty, and to find words that help meet the complex terrains of grief. The poems we read and write won’t be able to hold all the feelings, but they will help us to meet them. We’ll be using Kim Langley’s beautiful book Send My Roots Rain: A Companion on the Grief Journey.
