When a partner dies, many of us feel not only a profound sense of loss, but we may also come to find that we’ve lost our direction, and even our sense of self.
Traumatic loss, toxicity from specific challenges we face in the LGBTQ Community, such as homophobia and not being legally married, can further complicate our grief. As time passes, the question of “Who am I now without them?” and “Who have I become now that they’re gone?” may dominate our thoughts.
In this workshop, lead by actor/writer and speaker, Michelle C. Bonilla, participants will discover that the unique experiences they have faced can lead to new, positive, powerful aspects of themselves – their new “Superpowers”. These new qualities can help define who they are now and help them discover who they have become, which is almost always someone quite remarkable.
The goal of this gathering is to recognize and cultivate these new superpowers, by using short writing exercises and perspective shifting tools, to empower and support each participants continued journey through grief to rediscovery.
No writing experience is necessary for this workshop. Although an open heart and
mind, pen, and some paper are recommended superpower discovery tools.
