Monthly Education Series: Grief Matters
Grief Matters is a monthly education series offered to explore topics of interest to those grieving the loss of a loved one.
Picking Up the Pieces: Honoring Grief and Connection Through Kintsugi
Rescheduled to Wednesday, July 29th from 6:00 – 8:00
What do you do with the pieces of a favorite dish or cherished antique when it has broken? We often discard the item because it is damaged and therefore no longer valuable. The Ancient Japanese Art of Kintsugi, beautifully repairs these broken pieces. Meaning “golden joinery,” Kintsugi encourages us to embrace and honor the damage as a beautiful, valuable part of its history. This is a powerful metaphor for the experience of healing from grief. Please join us for an evening of grief education, support, and therapeutic art. Each participant will create their own piece using the technique. Supplies provided. Please register by Tuesday, July 3rd.
Registration and Materials Fee: $15.00
Check back monthly for new programs. Upcoming planned topics later in the year include:
• Biblical Perspectives on Grief
