On the Practice of Presence for Healing Personal and Collective Grief

SEE EVENT DETAILS
In unsettling and uncertain times, the individual and collective heartbreak that lives in both our bodies and our communities can feel insurmountable. Many of us have been conditioned by the dominant culture to not name, focus on, or wade through the difficulties in our lives. But in order to heal, we must make space for grief, prioritizing our wholeness, humanity, and inherent divinity.

Social justice activist, social worker, and yoga teacher Michelle Cassandra Johnson offers to those who feel brokenhearted, helpless, confused, powerless, and desperate the tools they need to be present and openhearted with their grief. In her latest book, Finding Refuge, Michelle uses personal narrative, meditation, and journaling practices to explore being present with our hearts, empowering us to see that we each have a role to play in taking intentional action to build momentum toward a shifting what is unsettled and unjust in the world. Through her work and writing, Michelle invites us to pick up the shattered parts of ourselves and remember our strength, wholeness, and sacredness through the practice of presence and attending to our grief.

Join program innovation leader in mindfulness, trauma, and racial healing Jenee Johnson in a conversation with Michelle about her latest book, her life and her work, and learn how to process your own grief, as well as family, community, and global grief.

Free, suggested donation of $10.
