Grief Tending Ritual
January 23 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
We are living in a time of so much loss. Loss of the way life once was, loss of loved ones, loss of physical connection, chapters ending. And the layers of grief continue with the ending of relationships, health struggles, income disruptions, a devastating sense of loneliness or a longing to be alone, systemic racism and inequality, or the ongoing destruction of our natural world.
We are just “waking up” and feeling the immense weight of grief. We can be numb no more.
Yet what do we do with all this sorrow? Traditional cultures know the healing powers of allowing grief to flow. That tending to our grief regularly and in community allows for vitality and resiliency in ourselves, our communities, and the world. And when done so in the presence of others, we feel the sacred container holding us, making it safe for us to express our deepest pains. Join us as we develop a capacity to bear witness to the grief of others while befriending our own sorrows to make room for more joy and hope.
