Animal Grieving Circle: Honoring Loss of Friendship
August 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Welcome to this month’s gathering of the Monthly Animal Grieving Circle. Tonight we’re focusing on honoring the loss of your friend.
The plan for tonight is:
- Ceremony for the animals
- Reflection on what it means to have lost a friend
- Sharing time
Each Circle is kept to 11 human attendees honoring one of their beloved animal pals. Only one animal per person please. The Circle is purposefully kept small so everyone who wishes has the space to talk about the animal they have lost and to honor the feelings they have around that loss. Because the Circle holds space for a highly sensitive, personal, and complex experience, there will also be times when we sit and support each other in silence.
We do have an alter for tonight’s ceremony. Each human attendees have the option of sending one picture of the animal being honored for placement on the altar. If you would like to have your animal pal’s picture placed on the alter, send me your picture. I need to receive the picture no later than Friday, August 24 at noon for it to be included on the alter.
