This is a closed workshop for BPOC only
Grief has been heavy on many of our hearts. Through shifts in recent months, throughout a lifetime and across generations, grief finds a way of making itself felt. Sometimes it shows up in our bodies as stiffness, nonchalance or fatigue. By holding grief-oriented space, it is our hope that we will all be able to breathe a little easier.
This is an invitation to hold and be held. You don’t need to be grieving to take part. You can talk about personal experience or stay abstract. You can speak or stay quiet, it's up to you. We will not ask for anything or try to fix the hurt. All we encourage is tender listening. This will be a digital gathering on Zoom. Please let us know of any access needs you may have.

A’Ishah Waheed is an artist working in healing justice, histories & archives. Drawn to embodiment, healing, play & dreaming; she’s been reflecting on grief in seasons & cycles.
