Although grief is usually associated with the death of a loved one, there are many kinds of grief. We all experience painful losses in life that affect us deeply, even though they may have happened long ago and we may believe we have put them behind us. Our parents’ divorce, the end of a friendship, losing a beloved pet, home foreclosure or job loss—these are just a few examples of experiences that can leave lasting scars that cry out for healing.
Unresolved grief can lead to emotional, mental and physical conditions that block or deplete your energy and keep you from living your best life. This workshop will help you identify where you may be carrying grief and help you work with it on a spiritual level to effect healing in all areas of your life. Working within a circle of safety and openness, we will use shamanic journeying, rituals, ceremony and sharing to begin moving through the grieving process with intention and awareness.
Previous shamanic journey experience is helpful but not required.
