Grief Tending

Restoring the ancestral cultural ways of addressing our grief

No human will complete their life without knowing loss

Because you have loved, you know loss


Because you have dreamed, you know failed expectations


Because you have cared deeply you know anger and rage


Because life can seem unfair, you know resentment

Ancestral intact societies knew the importance of grief tending and cultivated a culture that helped steward a person through their grief.  It's said,

Grief is a deep and often unseen force that flows beneath the surface of our conscious experience. Like a river, grief has its own currents and depths, and it can take us to places within ourselves that we may not have explored before.

In our grief tending sessions we draw from these time proven cultural practices, wisdom and inspired perspectives to steward you through your own process while revealing the hidden layers, healing, and meanings therein.
