'Grief is a form of generosity, which praises life and the people and the situations which we have lost. Grief that praises life shows the depth of our appreciation for having been given life enough to begin with, to experience both love and loss and that with all the mistreatment we humans give to the earth, we still have this amazing unlikely opportunity to actually speak and bathe in the Divine.'
Martin Prechtel from 'The Smell of Rain on Dust'
Grief rituals are a way to give a voice to the sorrows that might be held within whether it may be losing a beloved friend, partner, relationship, family member, career or grieving the reality of our current environmental and social world.
If we allow our tears to flow freely than our laughter is that much more liberated to be shared... Without expressing the emotions locked within we can easily fall into numbness which is equal to not living a full and meaningful life.. And it is in allowing ourselves to feel the depths of our true experience we give ourselves permission to come alive once more...
Tara has gone through an extensive journey with grief in the last two and a half years as two of her closest friends died young from cancer. To read part of the story please click here: http://www.windhorsesanctuary.com/deathgrief/. It is through this experience she realized how vitally important it is to allow one's grief to be expressed. She has created a grief ritual combined with her equine assisted learning (EFL) and coaching tools with the horses to hold safe space for others grief to emerge, release and heal.
In this grief ritual journey you will experience expressive art therapy, time with the horses for self contemplation, do a release exercise with the horses, learn tools to understand and be with your grief and an active group grief ritual to memorialize and release your grief.
This event will be both inside and outside.
