Classes & Events
We are pleased to welcome back Carla H. Brown as she hosts a Grief Yoga workshop live and via zoom in the Sanctuary on Mother’s Day, May 9, from 3:30 to 5 PM.
In a Grief Yoga session, a potent space is held to face towards and move through the pain & suffering of loss, to feel liberation and relief.The event has a donation basis of $20-$35 suggested.
~Receiving the richest experience out of this class means~
(Moreso for Zoom. I will hold the space for those attending in-person)
-Be fully present in a distraction-free zone. Turn off your cell phone. Let yourself be fully present and go deep.
-Create a private space for yourself only where you feel safe to express.
– I will be leading you in audible expressive exercises, giving you the chance to make loud sounds groan (cry, make loud noises, scream, however your body wants to release).
– Give yourself permission to give voice to the pain by letting your spouse/family/housemates know what’s going on and ask that they give you the time and space to be with your grief to transform it. When you hold back, you hold on to the pain. Your vulnerability is key to your healing.-Ask them to be out of the house during The GriefYoga session… OR, Arrange to use a secluded, private place in your home where you won’t be disturbed.
<<Here is a short video explaining some of this: https://youtu.be/mEiWs5v0VuI>>
How to prepare your space:
-Wear comfortable clothing.
-Have water available and be well fed. -Eating during the session is not advisable. (The body is unable to feel deeply and digest at the same time. Both take energy.)
-Bring to Inner Light OR Set up your space with: a blanket, big pillow or couch cushion, eye cover, journal (optional).
