Tiger Balm: A Ceremony to Acknowledge Grief, Heal and Celebrate AAPI

May 20, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Tiger Balm

We come together to create a supportive space for/by AAPI to amplify our well being. Grief reveals itself in many ways and various expressions. The salve that soothes our losses can be through acknowledging, reflecting, writing, and speaking our grief. Applying awareness and wisdom to the perceptions of our external experience can allow us to plant the alternatives that ultimately liberate us.

In this two-hour long ceremony, we will use creative exercises, generative writing prompts to access and reflect on our grief, access deep insights from a Tibetan Buddhists lens and apply it to a personal practice, and experience a guided Meditation to set our intentions and motivations to extend loving-kindness and compassion to ourselves and others.

We invite you to bring your elders to share in this opportunity to heal.

Please bring a journal, a writing tool, and anything else that may bring you comfort and ease.
