Jane Keene and Maya Spector Present:

Convening the Council:
A Gathering of Women Elders

Without many role models and the support of our youth-oriented culture, it is a challenge to take our place as respected elders and wise women.  We must claim that position ourselves.  In the five remaining gatherings of the series, we will use ritual, storytelling, art and meaningful conversation to explore our place as women in the later stages of our lives.
(You don’t need to have attended the first session.)

Barry and Maya Spector

With Bruce Silverman and Marcia Rayenne  

invite you to our 21st annual

Day of the Dead Grief Ritual

Saturday, November 3rd, 9:00-6:00

Hillside Church, El Cerrito, CA.

Whether or not we have recently lost loved ones, we all carry a heavy load of grief and stress simply by living in these times. If we can’t find ways to drop the weight of this emotional burden, we can become hopeless, bitter or numb. Letting it go makes room for a new kind of imagination to enter. But releasing these emotions requires a safe space and a caring community. We will take a full day to help each other remember our ancestors and our personal and collective losses. It will be a day of mourning and remembrance, but also of great beauty and celebration. There will be poetry, storytelling, drumming, altar building and chanting from African, Celtic, Mexican and other traditions.

$30 in advance. www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3613889

$50 at the door
