Finding our Center after Grief

Service Description:

It has been almost 3 years since the world shut down due to covid-19 and those years have been a time of great individual and community grief. The feelings of loss we have all experienced have knocked us off center and we’re all a bit wobbly. How do we move through our individual and collective grief in ways that recenter us as individuals and as a community?
