In the aftermath of the Oregon District shooting, Sinclair is offering a special opportunity for conversation and healing.
On Wednesday, Sept. 4, from 3:30 to 6 p.m., students are invited to gather in the “Peace Place” on campus, room 10-442. Representatives from Bespoken Live Storytelling Group and Labors of Love Counseling will be on hand to guide students through a period of conversation and expression, designed to help rebuild trust and to renew love for life.
Bespoken Live is a storytelling group based in Cincinnati. They offer a program of storytelling and mindfulness, designed to create a safe space for students to find their voice together.
Labors of Love is a counseling service based in Mason, Ohio. They work with survivors of traumatic events to create space for healing and growth. Their focus is not on “quick fix” solutions, but on long-lasting change and healing.
Multifaith Campus Ministry Chaplain Larry Lindstrom is the contact person for this event. He noted that these two groups contacted the school to offer their services.
“We are blessed to have these specialists come to campus and walk with us through this difficult and challenging time,” Lindstrom said. “Their visit serves as a tangible sign of the support and love that surrounds us all, as we make our way through these days and into a new chapter of life as a community. I hope that the students who attend will find new strength and hope; that’s what will carry us all through this time.”
This event will be limited to 25 attendees. For more information or to register, contact Lindstrom at firstname.lastname@example.org or 937-512-2481.
