“Happening Tuesday! We often feel like we have a never ending well of grief—between ancestral grief, trauma, systemic oppression, illness, isolation, loss of ability, loss of close ones, climate crisis and more—there is so much to grieve. Many of us spend years feeling that we can’t tolerate tapping into this well. When we finally do, there are the same number of years worth of grief inside. Grief has a purpose: it teaches us about love and what is sacred. It has a purpose in our nervous systems. How can we be resourced enough to connect with this part without feeling overwhelmed? How can we begin to love grief? How do grief and the ventral vagus nerve connect?
Using IFS, cranial sacral techniques, gentle movement, somatics, and Earth-based wisdom, we will be invited to connect with our deepest parts and our deepest wells of grief in a trauma-informed space.”
