Grief is a universal human experience, however it can become a devious, precarious entity if not expressed. If you choose to ignore grief, it can haunt you with gnarly talons, manifesting as physical, mental and emotional disturbances. When not expressed it can even hide within the fabric of the familial collective psyche for generations to come.
Unfortunately, our culture has forgotten how to grieve and has learned to suppress this powerful and languid emotion. In contrast, our indigenous elders see that when great loss occurs, we need to be held in sacred circle by community. Our tears, wails and cries must be witnessed until we can fully release the pain of loss, allowing one to come into peace, gratitude and wholeness.
Have you experienced grief over the loss of a loved one, career, partnership, miscarriage/abortion: an expected or previous way of living that no longer exist? Or have you stuffed your grief for years, knowing that it still lives within you? Please join us in a women’s Grief Ceremony and Sweat Lodge to release deep seated sorrow while being held, heard, witnessed and moved in sacred circle: a vehicle into greater acceptance, gratitude, and lightness of being. This deeply healing experience will culminate into a celebration of joy and gratitude for our past, present and future.
Our tools for alchemy will be:
- Community connection and sharing
- Guided meditation, energy medicine, channeling our intuition, and expressing our creativity with love and honor.
- Ceremony with embodied movement and ecstatic dance propelled by live drumming and evocative world music
- Sacred fire, prayer and sweat Lodge
You can expect to be nourished and supported through a facilitated journeying of energetic contemplation and embodiment practices. We will release and expand into the deep resources of our being, traversing the planes of individual and collective heart and soul.
