When we are in this most fully human place, our broken hearts call out to understand and find solace/sanctuary. We cannot understand what deep grief is doing to us as it is happening. We are in fact being dis-integrated and rewritten. Ritual is an integral part of finding moments of respite and trust when we can’t hold to the past and we can’t imagine a future.
Rituals of Grief
Ritual helps us express our experience ‘beyond the threshold of the mind’. It strengthens our faith that we can live through what we often cannot comprehend. Both in community and individually, we’ll explore what grief means to each of us. We’ll use body awareness, interactive activities, the labyrinth, and community to discover what nourishes each of us. We’ll develop practices for our minds, bodies, hearts and spirits that support our journey and remind us of who we are.
