Grief is active, it is passionate, it is full of heat, full of life. Often, it is full of anger as well. We come together in the Grief and Forgiveness Circle to acknowledge our humanness, our broken heartedness over loss and change.
Grief is not stagnant. Grief is not silent...for long, because grief relentlessly calls us to some form of expression. To not acknowledge your losses is to refuse the most precious part of you; the part that loves freely, knowing that what we love we may lose.
Please join us Tuesday night, August 23, from 6 to 7 pm at the Swannanoa Valley Friends meetinghouse, 137 Center Avenue, Black Mountain, NC. Weather permitting, we meet on the back deck. Otherwise, inside. You are encouraged to bring something that represents your grief: a poem, a song, an object, a stone. The circle is free; a donation of a dollar or two for the meetinghouse is appreciated.
