12-12:30 Tend your grieving heART through Creativity with Kara Jones
Have you ever heard the term "creative grief"? Or wondered why the experience of grief is so different from the "rules" of grief we are steeped in via family, pop culture, socio-cultural expectations like "closure," "stages," or "3 days bereavement leave"?
In this session we'll offer an introductory overview of expanding the definitions of both Grief and Creativity. And then we'll do a first pass experiential using a tool created at The Creative Grief Studio called "The Ripples Of Loss." We'll walk through the experience together and you will be provided with various creative ideas for taking your Ripples into more exploration if you like.
