Dia De Los Muertos

A Workshop for individuals and Families to prepare for celebrating THE DAY OF THE DEAD in our homes

 

Join us as we learn about Dia de Los Muertos and make ofrendas (altars) and paper marigolds for our home celebrations to honor our ancestors and loved ones who have died.  There will be skulls to color and other decorations to make for our homes.  Bring your own box or buy a small one for $2; and bring pictures, mementos, ribbons, and other things to make your personal altar to a loved one.

Facilitator: Beverly Terlep enjoys working with people of all ages to explore what it means to be human, to be body and spirit, and how to give visual expression to our spiritual lives. For over twenty- five years, Beverly has worked with individuals and groups in hospitals, churches, senior centers, and the local community dealing with spirituality, as well as self-awareness and personal growth. Beverly has an M.A. in Applied Theology from the School of Applied Theology and Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley and a post-Master’s Certificate in Art Therapy from the University of California, Berkeley.
