with Chantel Bennett & Erin Price, LICSW, OSW-C
This series is an opportunity to approach living and dying with a bit of playful curiosity. Though death is an inevitable part of living, we rarely speak of it openly and this secrecy can harbor fear and isolation. In this series, you’re invited to share your own thoughts about death and dying with others, then explore what your life and living means to you through creative expression and craft. By the end of this series, I hope you’ll have a deeper understanding of your own thoughts about death and creative tools to continue crafting what it means for you to live.
This 4-week virtual group will offer discussion and exercises to participate in during each session as well as opportunities to continue reflecting outside of group time. Due to the intimate nature of this topic and the supportive space we hope to cultivate, we encourage you to sign up for this program only if you plan to attend and participate in each of the 4 sessions.
This group will meet on Tuesdays from 3:00-4:30pm ET.
