Conscious Conversations: On Loss & Healing
Conscious Conversations: On Loss & Healing
To live is to experience adversity. While loss and trauma remain taboo topics, discussing them openly and intentionally can create a platform from which we can cultivate deeper wisdom, and ultimately live fuller and more connected lives.
This participatory group discussion is an invitation to contemplate the vast spectrum of loss—from the death of a loved one to the loss of a dream, and much more in between—as well as our experiences with grief and recovery, resilience, and companionship in these universal processes.
ABOUT CONSCIOUS CONVERSATIONS
Conscious Conversations is a series of participatory group discussions to explore important topics to the community including relationships, resilience, identity, spirituality, grief and healing.
With facilitation from a moderator and selected artists, participants will create a supportive space for intimate discussions grounded in appreciation of and curiosity about our shared human experiences.
We will practice self-expression and holding space for others, to both listen and be heard. This social practice builds from individual reflection to community connection, inspiring experiences of acceptance, awareness, and transformation.
