Grief associated with a loss of a loved one can feel unbearable. Processing your grief through ritual can help you move from agony to acceptance. Participating in Grief Rituals to remember your loved ones allows you to access and work through your grief in a safe and constructive way.
Rituals are actions done in purposeful ways that symbolize something much more than the acts themselves. Rituals give purpose to action and always serve to connect us to something else, generally something greater than our own solitary selves. We may engage in ritual as we seek peace, clarity of mind, or to become more grounded. We may seek connectedness to family, a particular person, our culture, society, traditions, ancestors, or even to our own selves.
That’s why we are offering our Community Grief Ritual on September 17th from 2-5pm in Boulder, Colorado led by Wendy Kaas.

“As we slowly come to the end of the ritual, there is a mixture of elation and exhaustion in the air. This form of soul maintenance is hard work, but it is necessary to keep us available to life. As we close, the participants are moving and swaying to the song we have been singing for hours. Their tears have washed them clean, and their faces are shining. The room is lighter. The participants’ bodies are giddy with joy–a wild alchemy of sorrow and joy, played out once again, as it always has been, in the container of sacred ritual.” – Francis Weller
