Grief & Rage Rituals
Communal Grief and Rage Rituals were designed for groups of people to come together to reimagine how to support each other in shared trauma. This work is not about reliving our trauma. I will help guide participants as they excavate where grief lives in our bodies, setting up rhythms and rituals that support us as we do that work, connecting our grief to our rage, and creating a container in community that reminds us we are stronger together and able to use the energy of these big emotions to create new patterns of thought and relating to each other and the world.
Typically, this work is done over several sessions, with a mix of inquiry, facilitated discussion, and somatic practices that help us unite body, mind, and spirit as we heal in community. I offer online cohorts and in-person cohorts and groups are capped at 15 people to create an intimate container. Please contact me if you’re interested in doing this work with me or you have questions!
