Grief Ritual Workshop
June 15 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$20
June 15 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Location: To be shared upon registration, Roseboom, NY
Grief is a river; it flows from a deep place and only knows rest when it reaches the ocean. If it is dammed up, blocked with a giant boulder of fear or judgement, the pressure that builds affects every other part of you. When given a safe and supported place, we can slowly chip away at our boulders and dams and let our grief flow out and our bodies heal.
Inspired by the grief rituals of the Dagara tribe of Burkina Faso and the work of Sobonfu Somé and Zahava Griss, we come together through drums, song and movement, supporting each other’s grieving process as we strengthen the collective.
This interactive workshop, led by Dzeli (Angelica Palmer of Cooperstown), includes movement, drumming and song to work towards healing and a sense of safety and community. Participants may be dealing with personal or general issues. All welcome. Size is limited. Pre-enrollment required.
(Minimum enrollment must be met to be offered). Fee: $20.
