Rituals for Living with Loss   

An 18-Hour Experiential Workshop • Presented Live Online

 Learn to dance with grief.
Expand your potential for healing.

Experience the transformational power of rituals to shift your perspective and process your emotions.

Strengthen your connection to yourself, to others, and the natural world.

During our lifetime we walk the labyrinth of grief many times.

Each threshold we cross in life is a separate step, but it is a part of the whole journey. We invite you to expand your potential and take this journey with us.

By blending the knowledge of the ancient wisdom keepers with the latest scientific research, we offer simple tools and practices that support your experience of living with loss, grief, and the process of mourning.

Participants find their lives enriched and their work with clients transformed through the discovery of a new relationship with grief.

During this 18-hour online, experiential workshop we will:

  • Explore rituals that help process grief and establish new connections in this life and beyond.
  •  Develop sensual and somatic practices to ease the emotional complexities of grief.
  • Experience the potency of mythic rituals through storytelling, dreaming, and expanding your imaginative powers.
  • Identify key attributes of the human energy field and investigate methods of releasing energies that do not support your journey.
  • Discover the power of the five practices of the No Regrets Project.
  • Experience the transformational nature of rituals.

Walking the Labyrinth of Grief is meant for all persons who wish to discover new ways to process grief – those who grieve, caregivers, death doulas, counselors, therapists, chaplains and medical support staff.
