The Sacred Work of Grief at Rowe Conference Center, November 27-29.

"She has risen phoenix-like from the smoking ashes of many previous selves and psychic deaths and knows from her own experience how the deepest crises birth the most astounding and transformative possibilities.” —Andrew Harvey

  Are you feeling overwhelmed by a personal loss? Are you feeling anxious about the uncertainties of our global crises? You may resist grieving due to concerns of getting stuck in your emotional pain, or you might resign yourself to “time heals all wounds.” Many people do—but there are other ways. Carolyn was a psychotherapist in private practice for 17 years and is currently a life coach whose work and passion have been dedicated to discovering the sacred depths of all of life’s transitions. As an experienced grief workshop facilitator, Carolyn weaves the processes of grieving into a beautiful communal tapestry of healing, transformation, and joy. In this powerful weekend of sharing, ritual, chants, and meditation, you’ll be invited to become part of an exploration of community grieving. With others, you’ll delve deeper into heartbreak, learn to involve nature in the healing process, and share your grief within the container of everyone’s support.
