Grief Retreat with Alexandra (Ahlay) Blakely
During this two day retreat our time together will be a combination of singing, poetry, movement, and practice in sacred listening. We will come together to be witnessed in our sorrows. Here we are invited to co-regulate our nervous systems in village and to be reminded that we are not alone.

Nov 04, 9:30 AM – Nov 05, 7:30 PM
Rising Moon Meadows, 4566 Anderson Way, Bellingham, WA 98226, USA
About the event
This space is an opportunity to share what is moving through us in whatever shape or form it comes in - perhaps numbness, shame, rage, trembling, stillness, wailing or something else.
Our work is also inspired by the five gates of grief from Francis Weller: Everything we love we will lose, the places that have not known love, the sorrows of the world, the things we cannot even name that we ache for, and intergenerational or ancestral grief. Together, we will lean into the vulnerability, trust, and surrender needed to remember how to grieve together as a community.
