invite you to our 21st annual
Day of the Dead
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’d like to offer a special invitation to those who are doing the good work of the world: care providers, nurses, youth counselors, psychotherapists, environmentalists, substance abuse mentors and social activists. We all know how this world pushes us to the brink of burnout. In the long run, we can’t hold the space for others to heal unless we have our own healing spaces.
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.
