Wednesday July 12, 2023 The Sound of Grief: Living with Loss and Longing

10:00AM- 4:00PM
Gimli, Manitoba

If you are grieving the death of a loved one, the loss of a significant relationship, the breakdown of your way of being, the news of a difficult diagnosis then sometimes a day with others who are also grieving can be healing. I invite you to the blessing of a holy pause. I am a weaver of community, a Holding Space Facilitator, and trained in expressive arts and soundwork. Using sound, music, writing, art and silence we will explore living with grief and give each other space to just be. No experience in any art form or music is necessary.

Melancolie by Albert Gyorgy

Ev is a multidisciplinary artist working with textiles, thread, fibre, natural objects, and with sound as a contemplative musician. She likes to hold space for deep connections with others, the sacred, the self, and the earth, through music and art. Music has always touched the very core of her being. Singing has been her connection to Divine Presence throughout her life, a way of joining matter and spirit. She is passionate about empowerment via vocal exploration, music and sound vibration. When people hear her sing they tell her that they feel connected to their inner healer and feel nurtured and empowered. Because she is passionate about gathering, reclaiming and resurrecting, her art is a vibrational mix of natural and recycled fibre. She’s particularly drawn to creating vessels, ephemeral art and hand stitching. For years she studied with the Canadian Embroiderers Guild advancing her techniques in stitchery, basketry, art dolls, surface design, papermaking and handmade books. In the winter she lives in Stratford, ON and strolls the shores of Lake Winnipeg in Gimli the summer.
