Autumn is a natural time to reflect on loss
Loss is an integral part of life, but our busy world allows little space and time for grief. We invite you to step out of that world for an afternoon, to nurture yourself by experiencing the healing power of yoga and writing within supportive community. Whatever your loss — death, illness, relationship, a major life transition — we welcome you.
Sam Sather, RN and certified yoga therapist with a talent for helping others cultivate insights of freedom in body, mind and spirit, will offer gentle yoga and mindfulness practices to promote discovery, self-nurture, and deep healing in the midst of loss.
Mitzi Quint, LCSW, a therapist with 20 years experience as a grief counselor, will lead expressive writing exercises to explore both the pain and the transformative possibilities that arise from loss.
No yoga or writing experience is needed; both practices are a place to be free to explore and experience without judgement. This is a time for personal reflection; sharing is optional.
Yoga props and writing materials supplied, but feel free to bring your favorite journal or pen.
Wear comfortable clothing that allows for movement, and layers that allow for temperature fluctuations.
Bring a water bottle if you have one. Healthy snacks will be provided.
