October Events – Traditions, Art, and Meditation!

Join us for these upcoming events!

Private Creative Arts Memorials

Have you been looking for a unique way to honor your loved one? We are now holding Private Creative Arts Memorials for groups of 10 or fewer with access to our Creative Room, menu of memorialization projects, supplies, and support from a grief counselor and activity facilitator. Book yours by calling 615-963-4732 or email griefsupport@alivehospice.org.

Day of the Dead Altars

Join us on ZOOM 10/14. Participants will learn about the tradition of Mexico’s Day of the Dead and learn how to create cigar box “altars” to celebrate loved ones who have died. Participants will display their completed altars at a special art exhibit on November 1.

Sound Bath Meditation (Virtual)

Join us every third Wednesday, starting 10/21, for a virtual Sound Bath Meditation session where participants experience both the vibration and auditory properties of sound to achieve a relaxed state.

Art Alive (Virtual)

Join us on the first and second Wednesday of October for Art Alive, a new two-week virtual art therapy group focused on loss and change.

A Look Ahead…

Join us 11/1 for Alive’s Day of the Dead Art Exhibit and Celebration. This special community event will include a memorial altar display, food, live music, a fire pit, and art therapy activities for kids and adults to celebrate the lives of our loved ones. Children’s Craft Time from 4:00-5:30 p.m. will provide families with the opportunity to make special kid-friendly crafts. Adult hours (ages 13+) from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. For COVID-safety, masks will be required and capacity is limited.

We hope you can join us for these special events.
