Healing Together Through Our Grief
The world has been changing at an increasing rate and we are called to continue changing as well; to cultivate greater resilience to meet these challenges from a place of greater wholeness. It’s from this wholeness that we are better able to meet our needs as well as those of our families, communities and the collective. Grief comes with all of our experiences of change and is a challenge that we all face now more than ever. Grief can also separate us from our wholeness if we don’t allow ourselves to move through it and learn from it. You are invited to take a step into honoring your wholeness in community amidst the many ways that we can feel torn and drawn in different directions. Let us instead come together both within ourselves and in community to heal together. In so many traditions and for many of our ancient ancestors, grieving is and was a collective practice. For those of us who have been separated from this communal healing practice we can once again return to it in tender, loving and profound ways.
Join us for this overnight experience to get a taste of a process of healing through grief that can be nourishing and grounding, joyful and expressive, comforting and connective as well as a growth experience. We will be using our bodies, our breath, our knowing and our creative expression as our guides to awaken latent wisdom that can offer us greater resource and resilience amidst the challenges we face. Inspired by the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and somatic movement, this gathering will invite you to learn about and move through the directions and layers of grief in gentle and powerful ways. We are all united through our grief and it is in grieving, especially with others, that we are able to remember who we truly are and what we are here to be and do in service to all beings.
The intention is to support you to move through layers of grief and to learn from it as we learn from each other in community. In the evening on Saturday, there will be teachings offered as well as a grief ceremony that will include a collective mindful movement practice to support your embodied healing. The morning on Sunday will include a gentle embodied movement and meditation practice as well as sharing together to cultivate community before we return home. There will be a nourishing dinner and breakfast served. There is the option to stay overnight or commute.
