Have you experienced loss or a heaviness from your personal story compounded by worldly events? Perhaps you have 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?
Join us for our 3rd annual 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. The last two years have been full of release, cultivating into a 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.
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. 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.
