The Ebb & Flow of Grief: A Guided Movement Meditation

about this event

“Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.” – Vicki Harrison

Learning to swim amidst grief is a necessity for movement. In this one-hour, online workshop, we’ll explore movement in the form of a meditation, a mode of transformation, and a creative force for healing. We’ll both honor and express our grief—individually and collectively—by tuning into how grief shows up in our bodies and then learning how we can creatively move through it from the inside out. Through visualization, guided movement, embodied listening, a short film, and written reflection we’ll come together to experience new ways of expressing and processing grief.

This free program is offered by UCLArts & Healing as part of their monthly, online HOPE Series, which was created in 2020 to support the resilience of our global community through social emotional arts.
