An opportunity for us all to be seen and heard with compassion in our grieving process whether it is personal or universal. Because we don't have to carry it all alone. The intention is to hold a clear ritual to contain and hold the process so we can move with and through grief, rather then discuss or simply tell stories. This is an embodied and community approach to working with grief.
We (Kate-Marie and Hazel) hold regular community grief circles wherever we may be in the world. We begin by opening a 'get to know each other' space that generates some safety and trust amongst us. Then as a community we enter into the ritual which is built around the process of a spiral. We all hold the space for each other, allowing each other to walk the spiral uninterrupted whilst expressing, listening, sharing ones grief. Once we have completed our journey together we close our time together with shared food to ground and integrate before going out to our everyday lives.
There is no money exchanged for these circles as they are our way of supporting community to connect and weave together. If you are interested in attending or hosting a community grief circle, please contact Kate-Marie to have a chat.
"Grief expressed out loud, whether in or out of character, unchoreographed and honest, for someone we have lost, or a country or home we have lost, is in itself the greatest praise we could ever give them. Grief is praise, because it is he natural way love honors what it misses" Martin Prechtel
