Coping Through Covid: Exploring Grief Through Intermodal Expressive Arts
In this 3 hour long workshop, participants will use expressive arts interventions to engage the full range of emotions associated with grief and personal transformation. Bring an open heart for exploration and growth.
Loss is universal, part of our shared human experience. The current Covid-19 pandemic has brought upon us unprecedented loss. Loss happens to all of us, but not everyone learns how to grow from it. What have we learned during the pandemic that we want to hold on to? What strengths and weaknesses have been revealed within us? How do we hold tight to what this time has taught us? Come explore through the expressive arts how to grow and move forward from such loss. In this 3 hour long workshop, participants will use expressive arts interventions to engage the full range of emotions associated with grief and personal transformation. No art experience needed. Bring an open heart for exploration and growth.
