Writing for Emotional Wellness - Living Through Seasons of Grief & Loss
Time & Location
About the Event
Ordinarily, we are strong and resilient, but 2020 has delivered us all a season of great loss and grief. In the morning when we open our eyes, before we can turn to see the morning sun, before we can grab our phone to check social media,the weight and the worry, the emotional pain, the anger, the heartache from loss of a family member or friend or a Brionna Taylor, a George Floyd, or a Jacob Blake or (at the time of this writing, the loss of close to 200,000 people to COVID-19) hits you hard - AGAIN.
You realize that you've lived to see another day and now it is time to go to work, go to class, take care of an elderly relative, or even home school your children this semester. You press on and suppress the Anger, Sadness, Emptiness, Longing, Guilt, Pain, Helplessness, Hopelessness, Fear, Anxiety, Surprise, Confusion, and Loneliness that you should feel.
Only allowed to grieve and mourn from a distance, sit bed-side, virtually, with loved ones sick and dying, and attend funerals on line streaming live between random social media posts, you may have been unable to fully expresscondolences and sympathies or share tears and hugs of comfort.
On Sunday, September 27, 3:00 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. ET, IAWH invites you to another “Writing for Emotional Wellness” cathartic, prompted writing and expression session, when we will explore the emotional space of loss and grief.
