We will celebrate Samhain and connections to our ancestors and descendants. In particular, we will use this time to explore the relationship between grief, love and action in our lives. In a recent talk, Robin Wall Kimmerer (author of “Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants”) discussed how grief, whether for a person or the planet, is a mirror of our love. She suggests that grief helps to remind us of what we love, and from that love, we can act to give back - to our families, communities, and even to Mother Earth herself.
