Today’s word for writing is “mourn.”
On pathways to collective flourishing, how do we practice mourning?
In your family of origin, what did you learn about mourning?
What systems/powers have contributed to the lack of collective mourning this year?
What are the collective consequences of moving on without mourning loss, pain, or violence?
Do you feel able to support people in their processes of mourning?
When are you most tempted to rush past mourning – yours or others?
Have you ever felt afraid of what would happen if you gave yourself fully to the mourning you needed to do?
Reflect. Meditate. Pay attention. Feel.
Then, write three lines of poetry.
May it be a prayer, a confession, an observation, a longing, a release, or a sensation – whatever is needing your tending today.
Collective contributions will remain open until tomorrow morning. Come back to view previous days contributions anytime here.
