Mystery in the Mundane (Or What the Living Do)

April 21, 2020


Illness can obscure many parts of our lives: the fun, joy, independence, intimacy, curiosity, creativity, and calm. Illness assigns demanding roles to patient and caregiver alike, which can become rigid and constraining to both. Suddenly, we all find ourselves cast in a COVID-19 illness story. This evening, we’ll use Narrative Medicine to listen well to ourselves and to each other. Together, we’ll read, discuss, write, and have the opportunity to share. In the midst of our current uncertainties, anxieties, and fears, let’s make space for the connective, the restorative, and perhaps some joy, too. Join us!
