“Contrary to our fears, grief is suffused with life force. It is not a state of deadness or emotional flatness. Grief is alive, wild, untamed and cannot be domesticated. It resists the demands to remain passive and still. We move in jangled, unsettled, and riotous ways when grief takes hold of us. It is truly an emotion that rises from the soul”
Francis Weller, Author of Wild Edge of Sorrow:
Rituals of Renewal and the Sacred Work of Grief
“When we open ourselves and take in the sorrows of the world, letting them penetrate our insulated hut of the heart, we are both overwhelmed by the grief of the world and in some strange alchemical way, reunited with the aching, shimmering body of the planet. We become acutely aware that there is no “out there;” we share one continuous presence, one shared skin. Our suffering is mutually entangled, the one with the other, as is our healing."
Francis Weller, Author of Wild Edge of Sorrow
“The heart that breaks, opens wider to love an compassion, with every tear, with every shout.
Grief makes the heart fluid, open and soft - making compassion possible.
Fully feeling your grief will heal your life and open your heart in ways beyond your wildest dreams!
