NAVIGATING GRIEF AND LOSS for RJ FACILITATORS and HEALING JUSTICE WORKERS
with Kena Acuña
Wednesday, April 26th, from 6:00-8:00pm
This is an opportunity for RJ facilitators and those working across the healing justice movement to process our own grief and loss. Using the circle process, Somatics, and mindfulness, we will explore the ways we carry grief and loss. We will also explore how we can hold our grief with compassion, while sustaining the work we do with our communities from a place of power, love and justice.
