Event description

Description

The only sure bets in life are beginnings and endings. And try as we might, we can’t have one without the other. It’s certain that we will all experience the processes of aging, illness and transition for ourselves, family and friends. It’s also certain that for as many happy beginnings as we will have, there will be just as many “small deaths” of ending relationships, aborted or completed projects, and shifting circumstances that require letting go.

For most of us endings are hard. When we face their mystery and completeness we also face the ephemerality of our lives and a plethora of existential questions. At the same time though, endings and change can create exquisite openings and access to profound joy or the “cosmic jokes” of change and non-attachment.

In this session we’ll co-create a unique ritual of release. We’ll work to dissolve layers of our identities through meditation, relax attachments through restorative movement and appreciate the poignancy of each moment with invitations for reflection and writing.

Pre-registration is highly encouraged
