Child, you cannot escape your grief. You can try to drown it in distractions, numb it with your vices, or pretend it isn’t there at all. Sooner or later it will spring back out of its hiding place and demand you stand and face it.Beau Tiplin
Grief Movement & Space-Holding
Loss comes in so many forms. And while there are numerous reasons why some people are uncomfortable and avoidant of grief, for such a universal experience from which no one can escape, it is hard to understand why the grieving process has been so dishonored and relegated to the closet, judged, suppressed, and even denied by our culture.
It is my honor and deep privilege to hold space for your grief process helping you to give yourself the permission to “do it your way”, which is really just another facet of the spiritual journey. There is room for each of the challenging emotions that arise, no matter how big or small, no matter how long or short.
Thank you so much for our grief movement session. It really got some energy swirling, and I was able to start to see things differently. I thought I wasn’t feeling any grief, when in reality I am. I mistook the relief I felt from no longer drowning in a tidal wave of acute grief, as not feeling anything at all. Small moments of grief and tears that I’ve been allowing seemed so small and insignificant in comparison, but they aren’t! After our session, I realized that these quiet, simple tears matter, too. It’s all part of the journey. And as much as it is disconcerting and difficult to face, I am doing better and getting through this. I don’t know why it feels like a betrayal (to who or what?) to heal, to go on with life, but it does. Our session today made me start questioning the stories I was telling myself. I realized I’m doing what survivors do, growing in resiliency and fortitude, and doing the best I can in any given moment, on this unique journey.
Who Is This For?
This work is for anyone who has experienced a loss or death, be it a loved one, pet, job, home, marriage, health and most especially, an identity. Let us not forget that waking up itself is a greiving process. The earth and her children are undergoing a tremendous and incomprehensible transformation. We are each traumatized in our own way and senstive to the extent of collective trauma affecting this planet. So there are those who will do this work for themselves and there are those who will be called to do this work on behalf of all of nature and spirit.
What This Is Not:
I am not a psychotherapist or councelor, nor am I a teacher or grief expert. Rather I am a present witness offering you tools to help you move through your difficult thoughts, emotions, and sensations during times of loss. Grief Movement is an ancillary and complimentary support along your path with powerful potentials to help you face your process head-on safely and move through it with grace and courage.
What Does It Cost?
That depends. For more information about session rates, click here.
