|death medicine keepers project| live virtual gathering 3.15.18 9pm est
grief is not a dirty word. it is a daily kindred or an occasional knowingness. grief is a flavor of our sufferings, the wilderness we explore after loss. loss of a loved one, loss of a dream, loss of a job, loss of breath. there is not a single one of us who has not suffered loss, who has not been invited into grief - or at least stood at the edge of such wilderness wondering what it holds.
this morning i was passing the time with a beloved sister while hand grinding my coffee. we were quiet, in the clear blank space of being, but she was so happy i had invited her.
then she looked up at me, in her quiet way, knowing what i was wondering about because we are like that. “just tell them what you do,” she said.
if you would like to come sit with us this evening, the death medicine keepers circle is gathering virtually at 9pm est. i will welcome you, do a tiny bit of drumming to settle us in, offer a practice invitation, read a little poetry, and open up the space to see what creating and sharing feels right and good. you are welcome to come to bear witness, to wonder, to explore, to stay quiet, to find a word or two to speak. all ways, all beings, all hearts in any stages or states of grief are welcome. i promise my presence and pure authenticity on anything i have already explored or known.
lets be in the wilderness together. lets bring all our medicine.
the death medicine keepers project is donation based, no payment is required to gather in. you can join in by phone or video conference. link to more information and registration in bio.
