Grief & Gratitude In-Person with Jenny Douglas

December 3, 2023 @ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Grief & Gratitude

“In myth, in ritual, and in theology, the broken heart is not a regrettable symptom of derailment, but is rather the starting point of anything that matters.”
–Kimberley Patton, professor, Harvard Divinity School

No matter how you got here, the experience of divorce represents a kind of initiation — a marked departure from a once clearly-marked map into a wild and unruly forest. How we choose to enter the forest and be in it, says a lot about who we will be when we eventually emerge from it.

If you are just beginning or in the midst of a split, this workshop is one of the best things you can do for yourself. In this intimate and powerful session, we visit the the complex and nuanced emotions that are part of separation and divorce. In the course of an afternoon, we will express and bear witness to feelings that at first seem contradictory, but which in fact hold the keys to moving forward. As workshop creator Jenny Douglas puts it “we’ll clear out what needs clearing out, in order that we might be sufficiently prepared to welcome what’s longing to come to us next.
