Grief Tending in Community
An organising principle of any culture is ‘what do we do with our pain?’
Many land based cultures recognise the importance of creating community spaces to tend grief. When held in community, grief can be a profoundly transformative experience and can open us more fully to life and to love. It can also help to build truly embodied healthy cultures and as such, is the ‘missing link’ in many corporate cultural change initiatives.
Our industrial society leaves little room for the communal expression of grief and the associated emotions of rage, fear and emptiness. Many of us are forced to grieve alone which can compound feelings of depression and isolation. Suppressing grief can lead to chronic conditions including physical pain and anxiety and may block expression and creativity.
Grief Tending in Community is an opportunity to express our grief held and supported by community.
No experience is necessary and all welcome. The day takes place in a geodome yurt on sacred land near Rye. Great care is taken ensure a safe loving space is created where we can be supported to grieve.
