Activity 2: Journaling

Activity time: 15 minutes

Call attention to the available color pencils, markers, pens, and pencils. Invite participants to write or draw, responding individually in their journals to the questions and discussions in the group. What rituals and practices do they observe at the time of the death of a loved one? What rituals and practices are important to observe at the time of their own death? Ideally, what role does family play at the time of death and bereavement?
