Loss and the grief that brings are, it seems, an intrinsic part of our ability to love. Although grief can be devastating we can also experience an incredible sense of vitality and joy in our love for what we have lost. Out of Ashes offers a space to include our individual and collective grief and explore the dance of these polarities.

We will take time to fully arrive in our moving bodies, awakening our ability to move with and through whatever is living in our grief; calling on our ability and courage to include and articulate what we find in our hearts and the stories they hold. We can then give ourselves over to the surrender grief invites, and dance the desolation it brings to make space for the creativity and life force waiting in the ashes of our loss. Our dance will be supported and consolidated with creative expression and reflection.

Grief comes in many shapes and sizes, it knows no boundaries and does not compare, it simply exists as part of our precious humanity. This workshop has shown time and again how we thrive when we come together in our grief and welcome its honesty. It becomes a force for connection, to each other, and all that gives and supports life.

Whatever you bring, be it personal loss, heartbreak for the world, cultural or inherited grief, or a simple curiosity you are very welcome at this weekend.
