tending the wild blooms of grief
Ashes & Blossom is an invitation to dance into the places of heartbreak and welcome the life force waiting there. We may then blossom in a deeper understanding of who we are and what really matters to us that grief can illuminate.
Dance is amazing for working with intense emotions. The awake, moving body creates a strong, safe and versatile vessel for the heart, in which we can evolve, rather than be overwhelmed by what we feel. We will dance with the Movement Medicine archetypes and Chambers of the Heart maps to resource ourselves. Strengthening and leaning into the support of human connection, we will welcome, express and share what is needed, enabling us to catch sight of the wild blooms in our grief.
This is precious time in dancing community to learn about ourselves, each other and strengthen our connection to all that gives and supports life, including our grief.
We will also draw on Processwork, sound, creative expression/reflection and intentional focus to clarify our understanding and nurture any emerging buds. This workshop has grown out of Rosie’s own journey with grief and is an expansion of the Out of Ashes workshop.
