Course DescriptionThis class is for those experiencing grief or anxiety due to the conditions of the world. In the face of despair, giving up, overwhelm, depression or tuning out, we can often find grieving to be a source of strength that provides courage and heart to move forwards. We will consider how we can best show up in these times and be useful to our community. This class is also appropriate for those with a challenging illness. Exercises, discussion, self-refection.
