In many traditional cultures throughout the world, the wholesome expression of grief arising from life’s inevitable sorrows and losses was known to be most effectively released in a communal setting. It was recognized that unexpressed grief could be toxic, leading to illness, depression, addiction, and even damaging and violent behavior towards oneself or others. It also was known that through supporting one another, welcoming the many faces and forms of grieving, and holding compassionate witness in a sacred ritual container, that a people could reweave the bonds of connection and belonging.

Blending song, poetry, easy grounding movement, small and large group sharing, humor, and the co-creation of a beautiful ritual setting, Laurence Cole provides a journey through the depths and heights of our aliveness. We come to a sense of renewal, connection and an awakened capacity for radiant joy.

Date: Saturday, December 1, 1 - 6pm
