About the Program
"Lament is an ancient ritual. It can be done individually, but more realistically, it is a communal expression of grief and sadness. Laments are often artistic: poems, songs and even visual representations meant to offload our anxiety, uncertainty, and loss... Laments are not meant to provide answers, nor be a pick-me-up. Instead, they operate out of an assumption that we cannot move forward until we acknowledge where we are now. We cannot dare to hope or dream and live again until we mourn. We cannot calibrate our anxiety until we acknowledge it in all its complexity. Community lament grounds us and binds us together even as we unravel."Connection is the antidote to alienation and feeling alone. Lamenting and sharing in grief ritual can support you to metabolize and channel the energy of despair, anger, fear and anxiety into empowered action and creative expression. DETAILS:
