Working With Grief: Storytelling Event 3/19

Grief is a highly misunderstood phenomenon in the modern world. In our fast paced, instant gratification culture there is no time set aside to honor and engage our grief. The unspoken expectation is to keep grief to yourself. This collective standard only leads to more desperation, delusion, depression, anxiety, fear, and isolation.

Join us for on Sunday, March 19 as Jon & Reetah guide us into better relationship with our grief through the ancient art of storytelling. We will have a discussion and Q&A after the story. Journeymen is hosting this event to support those in our community who are wanting to learn more about grief, in general, and their own relationship with it.

This event is open to the boys in our program, their families, and our wider community (regardless of age, gender, or affiliation with Journeymen). Although we specifically serve teenage boys, we believe that storytelling and grief work are best done in the wider community and culture. This event will serve as an introduction to ideas around how to process grief in community and to our facilitators, Reetah Mauldin and Jon Rousseau. They will be hosting a Grief Ritual April 21-23 on the property and invite all those interested to visit this website and bring their questions to the storytelling event on March 19th.

Sunday, March 19th, 12:00 - 2:30
