“Grief is praise, because it is the way love honors what it misses.” – Martìn Prechtel, The Smell of Dust and Rain: Grief and Praise 

Grief is an unavoidable part of the human experience, as we all will surely be separated from something or someone that we hold dear in this lifetime. The way we move through this process of grieving is unique to the individual and often can be difficult to navigate and express. For this reason, developing new ways to be in a relationship with and to express grief can transform suffering into sweet medicine. 

Within this workshop, led by Sound Healing practitioner Marlene Boyette, space will be held to: 

  • Honor what and whom is being grieved 
  • Experience very gentle / accessible movement (asana / yoga) as a tool for shifting and releasing stagnant emotions from the body and heart space 
  • Experience stillness and quietness as means for reflection, honoring and understanding 
  • Be immersed in sound (via singing bowls chimes and other instruments), as an approach to addressing energetic blockages, softening the mind, physical body and heart center through a vibrational experience 

Participants are welcome to bring: Images and / or items that will be used to create an altar honoring what / whom is being grieved, a journal and writing utensils. 

Check-in will be at Story Chapel.
