Tending our Grief: A Conversation and Ritual
The Grief Space: A Safe Place for Guided Conversation and Ritual
This intimate room will provide Bioneers attendees with a gently curated healing space for connection, contemplation and experiencing the transformative power of communal grieving. All the sessions held here will be facilitated by death midwives /community gatherers/educators Anneke Campbell, Birgitta Kastenbaum and Amber Deylon.
The room will be open from 2 to 3 pm, before the day’s two sessions begin at 3pm, for those who want to come and sit quietly and/or write messages for the altar, but the room will be closed once each session begins to assure privacy. The communal altar invites you to honor loved ones by bringing offerings including photos and/or responsibly foraged gifts from nature.
Cultures worldwide practice rituals deeply intertwined with the natural world to mark transitions and losses of life. Come join us in a circle to explore how resilience and thriving in these difficult times require expanding our ability to be present with grief and getting to know it for its gift potential of regeneration and transformation. Through intimate sharing and group conversation, anchored in breath, embodied practices and offerings to our communal altar, we will connect with the strength and healing available when we honor our grief in community.
