“Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak knits up the o-er wrought heart and bids it break.” -- Shakespeare
In this three-week workshop, Regi Carpenter will meet you with kindness, compassion, and understanding through spoken and written word work, deep listening, and group support. Together we will hold the wound of loss and reaffirm both love and life.
