Our job isn’t to endure and get through grief. What if we see it as a sacred time—something vital to our soul.
Endurance and resilience go hand in hand and bring both strength and lightness to our lives. It may take endurance to stay with discomfort to find the best solution to whatever challenges are present; resilience gives us the heart to do so.
In this workshop, Shraddha Hilda Oropeza will share a presentation of the five gates of grief as offered in The Wild Edge of Sorrows by Francis Weller, followed by a slow, soothing Yin Yoga practice focused on the lungs. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, this organ is believed to be connected to grief, sadness, and detachment. Additionally, Shradda will share thoughts about why it’s important to make space to grieve and rituals to acknowledge grief.
Now is the time to settle into a quiet and deeper space within. Now is the time to notice what we are holding in our hearts … and to grieve together.
Recommended Props: journal, candle, two-three yoga blocks, two blankets, and an eye pillow.
A recording will be made available to participants for two weeks following the workshop.
