Gray Whale Memorial Service and Grief Ritual

What

Free gathering to reflect on the recent strandings of gray whales along the our coast. Hosted by poets Elizabeth Herron and Larry Robinson with a grief ceremony facilitated by psychotherapist Francis Weller, known for his work in the healing power of ritual.

Why

The goal of this event is threefold: 1) to grieve for the whales who have died and express our gratitude for the generations of their companionship; 2) to provide the community with the space and ritual to express their grief for the loss of the whales and the degradation of their ocean home; 3) to raise awareness about the impacts of climate change on the marine environment.

Who

People of all ages are welcome to attend. Dogs on leash are also welcome.
