Grief Alchemy

September 2019

 

Have you experienced loss or a heaviness from your personal story compounded by worldly events? Please Join us for our 2nd annual Women's Grief Ceremony and Sweat Lodge.  Last years event was beautiful and full of release and joyful gratitude. 

Grief is a cup that we all drink from, and it is ours to empty. Yet our culture has taught us to move past the sorrow and stuff its potent lessons, which serves as a portal of awakening and aliveness born from what seems intolerable. 

The truth is that grief cannot be mastered, nor can it be run from, for it builds in our distraction, hiding within the familial collective psyche for generations to come. Grief is an experience that demands presence, awareness and vulnerability. It ask of us to surrender into the whims of denial, anger, sadness, sorrow, shame and guilt. Within it’s many layers of burdened weight, lies a potent medicine that awakens us from the languid states of being into a gaping trust, gratitude and love for our multiplicity of oneness. 

Have you lost a loved one? Do you feel the pain of the earth? Are you in the liminal states of life, saying goodbye to an old way of life, trying to find your way? Please join us in a Women’s Grief Ceremony and Sweat Lodge, a weekend of deep connection to lighten the individual and collective weight of grief so we can walk gracefully through the changes of life in a trustful communion with all that is seen and unseen. 

Kari has been seasoned by her own experiences with grief and has assisted many in their process of sorrow. All, just as Kari, were holding heavy stories of personal, earthly and ancestral grief for decades/lifetimes, which became a force field of energy keeping them from their inherent power, joy and creativity. 

Voyage with us to empty y/our cup. We will share, sing, create and move into the night with ceremony, then wake up to the new day with sweat lodge led by my beloved sister and wise woman Pati Turner of Sacred Earth Foundation.  We will close with a feast and celebration of our love for the oneness we are all apart of. Please consider joining us and sharing with your sisters this important work. 

 
 

 

"When we heal ourself, we help heal all those who came before us, those who are among us and those who will succeed us. We are a multiplicity of Oneness."-  kari

The Grief Alchemy

Program

Our tools for alchemy will require our vulnerability to be the bearer of grief and our ability to be the witness of grief. Understanding that we are each a mirror of the other and their is power and healing in our coming together. We will sink deep into our intuition, reflection, creativity, movement and prayer within ceremony and sweat lodge. 

Our circle will be intimate so please Reserve your spot as soon as possible. Last years event sold out within weeks of posting.

This is a very safe, loving healing space. If you are dealing with any grief, new or old, Kari can help you process. She is a warm, empathic healer. I did this lodge last year and it was amazing! There were activities to help you move through any grief you are dealing with. Then the experience culminates into a sweat lodge! The other women in the group were amazing and the location is so beautiful!

I have also worked with Kari one on one and I highly recommend her. She is the real deal!
