Event Description: This gathering is open to anyone who carries grief in their hearts and who has never had the chance to express it in a caring company.
You will be invited to openly share with others, to grieve a beloved who has died, including those who you didn't get a chance to mourn, or never got a chance to say goodbye to.
Or maybe your partner, friend, or parent is dying and you cannot find a safe place to grieve.
Maybe you have been diagnosed with an incurable disease and you need a safe space in which to grieve this.
Come and allow the rivers of grief to pour healing waters over your heart.
Phyllida and a group of compassionate friends working in the fields of bereavement will guide you into this sacred ceremony.
There will be lots of singing and Celtic Grief Mantras, or Gutha, encouraging openness of the heart of grief in us.
Phyllida worked extensively with Elisabeth Kübler-Ross in the eighties and nineties and as a ritual of gratitude to Life Itself, offers this ceremony to the community. It will be her last communal gathering working with grief and loss. Phyllida invites you to come, let your heart feel the grief and in a safe space with healing others, be held in a space of deep compassion for your own heart and for the common suffering in our world.
