This is a place to honor and give expression to personal and collective grief - tears, rage, mourning, sadness, numbness, pain - it is all welcome.
Grief is a given in this life, and there are many gateways to grief - death, loss, change, divorce, betrayal, unrealized dreams, places in ourselves that have not known love, what we expected and did not receive, ancestral grief, trauma, the sorrows of the world and the reality that everything we love, we will lose.
In modern culture, many of us have forgotten how to grieve. Grief is a natural part of the human experience, and meant to be experienced with others, communally not in isolation; it is intimately connected to our love and gratitude and can deepen us if we allow it. To learn to metabolize grief into a gift of beauty to the other world is a skill and a practice we can cultivate and tend. It softens our hearts and opens us to our humanity with more capacity to respond to the world around us with compassion and wisdom.
