Caroline Horton, with Amy Schneider

Journaling to Process Grief

Weekly, May 8 – June 12
Wednesdays 6:00 – 7:30 pm May 8, 15, 22, 29, June 5, 12

This series of six classes will focus on the different ways we can use grief journaling to access our grief, redefine it and come to know ourselves more intimately through the process. Grief is barely talked about in our society and when it is, it is as something to “get over” as opposed to something to incorporate into our lives. It is viewed only as a negative emotion where in reality, grief is the reflection of how deeply we loved. Through the use of simple exercises and prompts, grief journaling can help to reframe the grief experience from the pain of loss to the understanding that love is eternal. During the first class, artist Amy Schneider will guide an art project to decorate our journals dedicated to this class. (Caroline will send a link with journal recommendations.) Your writing is personal, and sharing is optional.

Hiawatha: The Legend of the Peacemaker

May 14 On-site and Zoom
Tuesday Evening 6:30 – 8:00 pm PT

Hiawatha: The Legend of the Peacemaker is a series of 23 oversized oils depicting the Onondaga Chief Hiawatha’s quest to share the Great Creator’s vision of unity through the Great Law of Peace. This rich visual presentation will introduce the genius of artist and theosophist Harold E. Forgostein (1906-1990), who painted the images in the 1940s. Weaving history with legends such as Longfellow’s “Song of Hiawatha,” the artist interprets the hero’s journey through stories of the initiations of Hiawatha, the Four Winds, and the call to unify the human family as symbolized by the League of Six Nations.

This is part of the 2nd Tuesday Transformational Series, sponsored by the Krotona School of Theosophy and the  2024 Centennial Committee.
