‘Honoring Grief During an Apocalypse

Guest Speaker, Marinda Freeman, Licensed Spiritual Counselor

Honoring Grief During an Apocalypse – COVID, Fires and so much more.

How do we address the loss we have all been experiencing?  Not only the deaths of so many, but also restraints on our ability to move about freely, the missed opportunities to be with our loved ones (both near and far), or to simply give or receive a hug. 

Where do we even begin to mourn? How do we start?  

There is a gaping hole in our society.  We don’t talk about death. The reality of these “permanent departures” affects the baby boomer generation disproportionately with the passing of parents, spouses, friends, siblings and in some instances, children. Many people today do not have a traditional or formal way to address grief.  Yet most experiencing the death of a loved one, crave emotional support and are seeking ways to work through their grief and loss. Creating rituals is one way to assist in grieving.  Even the known rituals such as funerals, wakes and memorials have drastically changed with this pandemic. 

Join Marinda in an exploration of grief and mourning and what actions we can take to sooth our hearts and minds.  Yes, it can feel overwhelming at times. Taking one small step at a time can make a difference. She will share with us how to create an altar for mourning and for healing.  You are invited to share in an evening of love, hope, support and inspiration.

About the speaker:
Marinda is a life-long spiritual student of many religions and disciplines and a licensed spiritual counselor and teacher for over 20 years.   Her book, The Grief Train, a healing journey of love, loss and renewal was the result of her personal exploration of grief after her husband died unexpectedly of a heart attack. She started a blog to write about her process and discovered that friends found solace and inspiration in reading her blog. Marinda wrote her book in order to provide a gentle, spiritual, non-religious approach to grief as a way to help others like herself.
