The Patient & Family Support Committee will host the 4th annual Rein In Sarcoma Remembers event on Sunday, September 27, 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm.

At this year’s event, participants will create a piece of Contemplative Watercolor that honors their experience of losing a loved one to sarcoma.  The best part is, you need no prior art experience!

Nina Guertin will expertly guide us as we create a contemplative watercolor.  In addition to being an artist with over 20 years’ experience, Nina is an End of Life Doula, a Certified Interfaith Spiritual Director, Grief Support Specialist and Ritualist/Celebrant at Tending the Spirit.  Nina has seen the transformation and healing in those with whom she works through listening deeply to story and working contemplatively with them in the mediums of clay and watercolor.

Contemplative watercolor is the process of setting intention for the time spent creating and then surrendering to the process. Creating a painting is not the goal; rather, the goal is surrendering yourself to being one with the precise moment you place color onto the paper, losing track of everything except the moment’s action. The results can be quite magical.

This event is open to any family and friends who have lost someone to a sarcoma cancer. Registration is required.  Registration deadline is September 18.  The event will take place outside at the home studio of Nina Guertin in Northeast Minneapolis. This outdoor event is limited to 20 people to safely accommodate an in-person event during COVID. Masks are required and hand sanitizer will be available. The event will take place rain or shine. We will have tents available in case of rain.

If we reach capacity and/or you would like to participate from home, we will be livestreaming the event for you join in. We will publish a list of necessary supplies before the event.
