Earth + Loss
Attendees receive instruction on using the earth element to ground personal and collective grief as they move through the healing process. The workshop opens by acknowledging the five nature elements (fire, water, earth, air, and space) and the seven directions (north, east, south, west, and within). After honoring loss, we journey together for a sacred composting ceremony. In guided meditation we remember how to let earth and ancestry witness our experience of loss. And finally we review practical grounding techniques such as earthing and communing with trees.
