Structured 31 days journal for bereaved parents with mindful, creative, healing elements.
This year’s Capture Your Grief is based on 31 acts you are invited to perform. Share a photo, artwork, video or written word that captures your own journey.
Capture Your Grief is about becoming more present and conscious in your grief experience so that you may learn more about yourself and hopefully discover more ways of healing to aid you in your journey of grief and personal growth.
It is also created with the hope that through the magic of social media you can find and connect with new people and make some beautiful friendships.
You can join the project at any time of the month and there is no pressure to take part every single day.
If something in this project feels like too much for you to do or if it becomes a chore – stop. You need to ask yourself if this is helping you or harming you? There is absolutely no pressure to complete this whole project. Set no goals other than to do what feels right for you.
If you are choosing to share your project online please make sure that the beginning of your photograph caption is titled with the project name, day number and subject, for example: “Capture Your Grief – Day 1. Sunrise Blessing”.
Are there any rules?
