About the Event
After my brother died in 2018 I didn’t know what to do with my grief. I wasn’t sure how to process my pain. I was uncertain about how I could possibly go on living after such a blow, after a loss so deep. I remember one of the things that saved me was, “just keep moving Alicia. Keep moving. Keep it pushing. Don’t stop. Don’t lose faith.“
Trust and believe I wanted anything but to be told, “Just let it go. You will be ok! Te acompaño en tus sentimientos.” Words from well meaning people felt empty.
For as much as I was on auto pilot, I was also on overdrive. So much in my life changed after his passing.
One of the things that kept me from living inside of my grief was creating. I created workshops, launched a business, focused on teaching, adopted a beautiful little girl, moved to the Caribbean and strengthened my spiritual practice. In many ways I was running from my grief. I many ways I did not want to feel this pain. I was running from holding the pain close and examining it, until now. Now it’s time to talk about it. Now it’s time to feel it. Now it’s time to write it.
These nine sessions are meant for us to write in community. We will be looking at text written by authors who have contributed to the subject. This is a generative writing workshop. You do not need to attend every session. It’s join when you can and take what you need.
