Prescription to Feel: A Guided Conversation on Love, Loss, and the Power of Community to Sustain Us

August 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Thursday, August 1, 2024
12-1:30 p.m. EDT
Ritual can help us to navigate life’s most challenging circumstances. In her new book, Fifty-Seven Fridays author Myra Sack illustrates how embracing rituals can help us find beauty and fulfillment while simultaneously experiencing grief. She writes poignantly about the extraordinary love and extraordinary grief that she experienced during her daughter Havi’s diagnosis with Tay-Sachs disease, through Havi’s death, and during the first year after she died.
Join Myra and the Ritualwell community for a conversation about both her personal journey of grief, and to learn about the many rituals that her family has developed to keep their daughter’s essence alive. Myra will share her orientation toward grief, her exploration of bereavement-science and spirituality, and devotion to grief literacy. She will invite us to fall in love with this possibility: that each of us can find a different way to be in grief with ourselves and each other.
During this event you will have an opportunity to engage in a writing prompt to reimagine grief so that it makes room for life.
All sessions will be recorded and sent to participants. We encourage live attendance for you to get the most out of the experience.
