CEREMONY SPACE TO SUPPORT and NOURISH our Totnes REGENERATIVE and RESTORATIVE CULTURE
~~~
Many people have been awakening to the truth of what is happening to our Earth’s sentient beings including our own species.

For a culture that has abandoned its relationship with Grief and Death it can be a very brutal awakening.
Grief being the twin of Love ~ Death being the twin of ReBirth there is an invitation here to being fully alive and in service to Life.

There is a possibility for our strong experiences of sorrow, fear, anxiety, anger, paralysis and on and on…to become a skill and an apprenticeship to Grief therefore to Love.

We can lean into Grief Tending & Composting as a soulful and rigorous practice for a homecoming to self and to our living world.

We can also apprentice to Grief to support other Rebels ~ before, during and after actions ~ with Grief and Homecoming events in XR communities.

People who have experienced Grief Composting and tending say that they have felt a Homecoming to the Heart and Soul of their own being.

“Though now addicted to security, comfort and managing uncertainty, our culture could learn to honour, teach and live grief as a skill, as vital to our personal, community and spiritual life as the skill of loving.” Stephen Jenkinson
~~~
We will hold a ceremonial space, that has three phases or invitations;
~ we will make space for gratitude,
~ we will make a space for welcoming and expressing our grief – however it shows up in that moment
~ we will make a space for homecoming – the welcoming back to “the village”

PREPARATION
As a way of preparing for the evening we ask you to bring a few things:
~ an offering to the land of flowers or seeds
~ something that represents your Gratitude and
~ something that represents your Grief.
~ water to drink
~ a drum of you have one
~ a little snack for after the ceremony.

MONEY : on Donation for The Woodland Presents CIC

TIMING: We will begin the ceremony at 6pm to end at 9:30pm. Please arrive at 6pm sharp to settle and orient yourself.

We ask that you stay until the end. This strongly supports the space and container of our ceremony.
