Loss & Living: Drum Your Grief with Vivianne LaRivière Online Class
July 25, 2020 from 9:30 - 11:30 AM (EST)
Drumming is music for the soul, and is also a practice that may help us process our grief. Learning how to acknowledge, recognize—and even embrace—our grief allows us to start rebuilding our lives around our loss,”
says Judy Coffin, program coordinator of ORA Lose & Living Program.
Drumming is one approach that gathers us in, without the need to talk, or
find words that are at times, so difficult to express. We can simply ‘be’ with the drum.
Facilitator, Dr. Vivianne LaRivière, considers the drum an instrument of peace, and drumming
as a spiritual and sacred practice. Drumming frees the minds, moves the body, is used at times
in prayer and/or meditation and is symbolic of the universal heartbeat! She believes the
energy of the drum can help us connect with our healing power, as it helps us get in touch
with our emotions at a very deep level. Drumming our grief is a way of processing our
grief by ourselves, and with others.
