The Magic Power of Grief

A healing space where we can collectively take care of our grief and alchemize it into a source of power and transformation

Do not be afraid of your tears.

They are a potent potion… a magical elixir brewed in the centre of your heart…

As the tears flow, they create soft channels in our body…

to be filled with peace.”

– Brigit Anna McNeill

Grief can show up in such a variety of ways, from the death of a loved one or the end of a significant relationship, to the challenges we faced as children or even the little grievances we feel when life doesn’t go our way. More often than not, as adults we stop letting ourselves feel grief, because the society we live in says we should be happy all the time.

But what if grief is actually a source of magic and power? What if, through grief, we were able to become more joyful, more loving, more alive?

Whether you are processing grief yourself, interested in how you can support others who are grieving or curious about creating a culture that can welcome and hold grief, this workshop will support you with new language and tools to explore grief.

The session will begin with a discussion about grief, how it shows up in our everyday lives, what happens when we don’t take care of it, and how we can choose to access the radical power of grief. We will then journey together on a transpersonal meditation, accessing images and feelings hidden deep in our unconscious. As we alchemize our grief, we can unlock hidden treasures that can bring deep healing for ourselves and even for the world we live in.
