Loss impacts us in so many ways. We feel grief from loss in our body, our mind, and our heart. Attending to both the body and mind through movement and writing can aid in easing some of the symptoms of grief by helping to unite body, breath, and heart.

Please join us in-person at the Center for Grief & Loss for our Moving, Breathing and Writing through Grief series. In this series of four 90-minute sessions, we will care for our bodies with gentle movement and breathwork followed by a period of writing from a prompt focused on an aspect of grief. Facilitated by Dallas Rising, a yoga instructor who specializes in somatic grief work. 

Participants should plan to wear comfortable clothing, bring a journal or notebook, and bring a pen. This experience is appropriate for those grieving the death of a loved one, as well as those suffering from an ambiguous loss.

Dates: January 3, 10, 17, 24 | October 2, 9, 16, 23, 30

What should I expect from this Moving, Breathing, and Writing through Grief series? Each of the four sessions will incorporate the use of movement, breathwork, and guided journaling.  Writing in response to a grief-related prompt will allow for reflection and processing, while the breathwork and movement will aid in being with the emotions and sensations that arise and moving through them.  

Is there a fee to participate? The cost to participate in this in-person event is $100 per person for the 4 part series. If you would like to participate, but are unable to cover the fee, scholarship options are available. Likewise, if you are able to give a bit more, it would allow for others to participate who might not be able to otherwise. We hope that this program is accessible to all who need this support.
