America is suffocating under an unbearable weight of grief and rage. There is violence in the streets, and we are separated from one another like never before.  We are grieving more losses than we can carry, and now, more than ever, we need practical, constructive tools for regaining equilibrium.

Many of us lost our sense of safety in the world as we became vulnerable to a deadly disease and the financial and social devastation that accompanied it. But many of us never felt safe to begin with, as we recognize again and again that a Black man cannot go out in public without the risk of being murdered.   

 We’ve lost faith in our institutions -- government, medical, religious and corporate – to protect and provide for us.  And as each  moment of this nightmare unfolds, we become more divided. Everybody is the “other.”

 In this online mini-workshop, social worker Sarah Peterson MSW, and grief counselor Dr. Terri Daniel, will facilitate a unique gathering to honor our grief while learning to communicate constructively about our divisions.

  • LEARN principles of non-violent communication 
  • SHARE  ideas with other participants about beliefs that keep us broken
  • ACQUIRE tools for self-care and anxiety management
  • JOIN in a sacred ceremony for healing and transformation
