Moving from Loss to Found: An Online Writing Workshop

Moving from Loss to Found: An Online Writing Workshop

with Alexandra Vassilaros, writer, founder of Make Meaning Workshop

Wednesday, Feb 16th, Feb 23rd, March 2nd, March 9th, 2022 | 6:30 pm-8:00 pm ET

 

Crisis can knock us right off our feet and fill us with resistance, fear, and stress. In this writing workshop, participants will explore the alchemy of grief and learn how we can use it to initiate growth, self-compassion, and emotional progress.

Together we will practice writing and listening to restore us despite daunting challenges and discover tools to ground ourselves even when we are emotionally exhausted, fearful, and numb.

We will gently navigate our grief and the stark contradictions of love and loss while finding balance and creating narratives that help us identify our experiences and heal.
