Event description

Description

Whether your loss is related to a loved one who has passed away, a relationship breakup, or something else that brings you to a state of grief, this workshop was created just for you. Restorative yoga, guided meditation, creative expression activities, and sound healing will support you in this healing space and help you learn to manage the heavy emotions of loss. Together we will dip into a sound bath while doing gentle and restorative yoga to ease the grieving heart and explore creative ways to contact, express and move as we honor loss in its many shapes and forms. By coming together in community, we can make space for ourselves and each other to process and transform our individual grief, together.

We will begin at 10:00 a.m. with a sharing circle and restorative yoga poses. At 1 p.m. we will share a lunch prepared with organic vegetables from the Green Gulch Farm. After lunch, we’ll move into some expressive arts-based practices, more restorative yoga, sound healing, and group activities. Our day together will end at 5:00 p.m.

If you wish to stay at Green Gulch before or after the retreat, accommodations may be available. Reservations can be made by calling 415-383-3134 (between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.). Single and double rooms are available and include meals and tea. Green Gulch Farm is located in Marin County, just north of San Francisco, in a valley that opens out onto the Pacific at Muir Beach. More details can be found on their Web site http://www.sfzc.org/ggf.


Please bring a journal, something to write with, and an object of significance for the grief altar. Wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in.
