Event description

Description

This workshop will focus on the use of poetry to deal with grief. After experiencing a loss, poetry can be utilized as a source of healing. This workshop will focus on the five stages of grief: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. Participants who are struggling with grief or have loved one struggling, are asked to dig deep and write about the stage(s) they are currently in. Each participant will have the option to share their work at the end of the session.

For this workshop, please bring a blanket to sit on, something to write on, something to write with, and an open mind. MoonLit will be in touch with you on the morning of the workshop with instructions on where to meet.
