Community Grief Ritual
Sunday, Feb. 16. 9:30am-6pm
Let’s come together and remember how to grieve as a community. This ritual is informed by the Dagara tradition of Malidoma and Sobonfu Somé as it has been carried by Laurence Cole and Francis Weller. Our facilitator Will Rogers has been apprenticing deeply to community grief for over two years and strongly believes that grief ritual is an integral part of what’s needed in this great turning. RSVP online or for more info contact firstname.lastname@example.org. $40-70.
