Roots of the Lightning Tree - The Gates of Grief.
Join us in this practical, experiential workshop that explores the nature of sorrow and grief.
CG Jung maintained that grief greens the tree of life. Grief is the price we pay for having loved and lived as fully as possible, it can be no other way. Our present culture could be said to be death phobic, treating grief as an outcast, unwelcome at life's hearth, in exiling grief could it be said that we in turn dishonour life?
We will be seeking ways to enter the Gates of Grief through collective and individual sorrow, to practise being intimate with grief as a skill that benefits ourselves and our communities.
This challenging workshop will create a safe container for participants, saying this we recognise that grief, trauma and loss are deep vessels and we cannot be accountable for the reawakening or exploration of such things. We ask participants to take a measure of themselves in this regard.
