These have been some of our most powerful &amp; emotional grieving and healing spaces, and we are grateful to bring this event to our virtual community. Suicide is so often clouded in shame. We want this to be a space of open conversation &amp; vulnerability, a space where we will honor &amp; celebrate those we love who have chosen to end their lives. </p><p>Rather than try and make stories up about why people made the choices they did, or sit in our own guilt or shame, or think we could have fixed it if we just did X, or believe that the mental health system could have fixed it if we just forced them into care…. we will simply grieve together. Finding answers is not our goal. That is not our journey. </p><p>We just want to say, we love you, we miss you. Thank you for joining us on Earth while you did. We don’t forget you, we embed you in everything we do. We are here witnessing and remembering and feeling this pain so it doesn’t kill us. </p><h3>Workshops</h3><p><em>All attendees will receive an email with information on how to register for a small group workshop: </em></p><p><strong>Current workshop offerings </strong>(more soon!)<strong>:</strong></p><ul><li>Intergenerational Trauma &amp; Ancestral Healing for Suicide Loss Survivors </li><li>Altar Build Workshop for Black Americans descended from enslaved Africans (Facilitator: kay, darling) </li><li>Building a Grief Practice 101 (Facilitators: Q + Rabbit Richards) </li></ul><p>For workshop descriptions check out: https://projectlets.org/suicide-series </p><h3>Access</h3><ul><li>The event will take place on Zoom</li><li>Access to the event is a donation based sliding scale: $0-$50 <em>(donations are encouraged &amp; deeply appreciated, but not required to register). </em></li><li>There is a ticket registration option that includes receiving a kit in the mail (these are limited to 50 for now):<em> If you would like to receive a package in the mail, you must choose the “Event &amp; Kit” registration option ($35 minimum donation, sliding scale: $35-$70). </em></li><li><strong>Please register by October 5th if you would like to receive a Kit.
