Uterus Funeral Using Seedling Paper

This ritual is intended to be done using seedling paper (“Seed paper is a type of handmade paper that includes any number of different plant seeds. The seeds themselves can still germinate after the papermaking process and they can sprout when the paper is planted in soil.” —Wikipedia).

Write a note on seedling paper to your own body, thanking it and saying what you need to say to it. Plant the paper, and after you plant it, say the Kaddish. Then celebrate your uterus by having uterus-shaped cookies and things that are red. Surrond yourself with friends and/or family to help you bury your “uterus” and experience the grief of its loss, but also allow space for some joy.

Learning to Say "We": Writing Identity

In this immersion, we will reflect and expand on our personal experiences of identity, using writing exercises and in-depth discussions to think about, challenge, discover, explore, and experiment with different ways to identify ourselves, to consider how those ways connect us to and separate us from others, and how they represent and misrepresent aspects of who we are.

Four sessions, starting June 15th
