illuminate Speaker Series presents: Nora McInerny today, July 21, 2021, from 6:00 to 7:00 pm PDT. This is FREE and open to the community, but registration is required for each event.
It’s been over a year since COVID-19 grounded our worlds to a halt: over a year of immense change and isolation and loss of all kinds. And while many of us are ready to open back up and get back to “normal life,” just as many of us feel as though that’s not an option for us.
In a culture that prizes picking yourself up by the bootstraps and looking at the bright side, grief and suffering are considered an interruption to life. Really, they’re a part of life, and in this continuation of her viral TED talk, “We don’t move on from grief, we move forward with it” Nora McInerny will provide inspiration, validation and actions we can all take to move forward together.
Since 1974, HSB, a local nonprofit located in Santa Barbara, CA, has been providing compassionate care and support free of charge “to care for anyone experiencing the impact of a life-threatening illness or grieving the death of a loved one” in our community.
