The Topic for September:
Grief & Loss is a delicate, profound, and sacred subject. We all have been informed and transformed by personal grief & loss throughout our life. It shapes us, our relationship to others, and the wider world. One of the most painful and confusing elements of grief is the social pressure to be okay, to get beyond it, to let it go. In reality, it is always there and potentially able to teach us what we most need to learn.
We will look at how practices of mindfulness & self-compassion support the reality of the grief process; how our natural feelings serve a vital purpose; and also how to context personal grief in a larger collective frame, what soul activist Francis Weller refers to as the 5 gates of grief. The format will be a combination of meditation, reflection, and teaching. While our subject is challenging, the atmosphere we create will be positive, comfortable, and well contained.
The Second Sunday Circle is a monthly gathering to explore diverse topics relating to spiritual perspective, path, and practice in an experiential and conversational format. Long time and brand new sol center friends are welcome.
