Turning Towards Grief: A Workshop to Summon Courage to Live Fully Alive in Turbulent Times

  • San Luis Obispo, CA (map)

We live in unprecedented, intense and unrelenting times.  Our days are permeated by awareness of and constant exposure to the state of our planet, climate change and the continued loss of species, political unrest and systemic oppression, personal loss of all kinds, and so much more.  Layers upon layers of grief can build up and block us from our true selves if we do not learn to metabolize it. The grief is undeniably here; we have a choice to either turn away from it or turn towards it. This workshop is for those who are ready to co-create a brave space to turn towards their grief and honor their pain in service to themselves, their relations, community and the larger web of life.  

We were made for these times.  In this workshop, we co-create a sound container in which to meet grief and develop an ongoing relationship with it. We explore the possibility that from this place of allowing our hearts to break open, we have even more access to joy, love and vibrancy.

This workshop is for those who:

  • Recognize they are experiencing blocks or obstacles in life and relationships

  • Feel overwhelmed by the intensity of these times

  • Don’t yet have a relationship with grief and want to cultivate one so they can live a fuller life

  • Feel emotionally numb and/or paralyzed by what is happening in the world

  • Are looking for a sound container to share with others

  • Are activists needing to recharge and renew in order to continue to be in aligned action

Co-facilitated by Kari Stettler and Donna Helete
