This group is now full so we added a second session on Thursday, September 10 from 8:00-10:00 PM. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to check for cancellations.
Lighting a candle, sending a prayer, wearing a keepsake and many other acts of remembrance like these are traditions held by many who have experienced the loss of a loved one. These rituals have been around for centuries in many countries and are an important part of the grieving process.
During this evening support group, we will decorate paper lanterns with symbols, quotes, wishes, prayers and art. We will process the experience of making these commemorative vessels while focusing on the therapeutic benefits art therapy can bring during your grieving process and the importance of being in community. We will also discuss ways of using this vessel to help process grief and continue to keep precious memories of your child alive. Looking forward to meeting all of you as we enjoy each other’s company, make art and process together in an atmosphere of love, healing and support.
Supplies: Paper Lantern
Colorful gel pens, markers or sharpies
Tea light candle
Matches or a lighter
I would encourage you to set up your space with things that comfort you.
Perhaps have a scented candle or diffuser going with a comforting smell and a nice cup of tea? Whatever makes you feel ready to dive into a therapeutic moment.
