Purchase Tickets

Embark on this journey of self-discovery and communal connection as we explore the depths of the labyrinth together, from creation to contemplation.

During this session, we will guide you in creating and embellishing your own classical three-circuit finger labyrinth. You will have ‘spirit at your fingertips’, encouraging easy access to moments of reflection and intention whenever needed. Following the labyrinth creation, we will gather for a meditation and sharing circle. Finally, immerse yourself in an illuminated walking labyrinth where you can find peace and contemplation amidst the serene grounds of Lakewood.

About MESO

MESO is a grief support organization led by Tida Beattie and Soyeon Davis, both trained end-of-life doulas and grief facilitators. Tida’s family immigrated to the US from Thailand. Soyeon and her family immigrated from South Korea. Through their experiences of being long-distance caregivers to immigrant parents, they noticed a dire lack of culturally aware resources on aging, end-of-life care, death, and grief, as experienced in immigrant families. Too often, deathcare education and services reflect the dominant culture and make no space for cultural safety, representation, or relevance. Tida and Soyeon founded MESO to support caregiving and grief with compassion and a cultural lens. Their practice provides information, increases capacity, and offers personalized support based on the pillars of curiosity, community, and compassion.

Meet the Hosts

Tida Beattie and Soyeon Davis are co-founders of MESO which provides culturally attuned resources to intergenerational immigrant families for loss and grief, focusing on cultural bereavement. Born from their own experiences as daughters of immigrants navigating profound inequities within the U.S. health, death, and grief care systems, Soyeon and TIda create and facilitate innovative, regenerative, wholistic, spaces for all kinds of grief. By reframing grief, they encourage possibility, creativity, and hope.
