Event description

Description

There is so much to grieve! Loss of a loved one or job, pain and illness, national and global crises, mass shootings, environmental devastation, anxiety producing presidential pronouncements…all of these and more affect us physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Places to be listened to deeply and compassionately are uncommon. Places to express the visceral sensations of grief in a safe, well-held communal context are even more rare.

The Grief Song Ceremony is just such a space. It is a day long, well facilitated ceremony to cleanse grief and allow joy, aliveness, clarity and strength to emerge. In this way, we become ready to actively create a more sane, sustainable, and healthy world.

The Grief Song Ceremony is based on traditional patterns of ceremonial grieving while weaving in the songs (made on the spot) of our own griefs. We hope you will join song elder Laurence Cole and rite of passage guide Rob Miller for this beautiful event. The Grief Song Ceremony is now 8 hours long and includes a lengthy open grieving session.


Laurence Cole leads group singing at festivals, fairs, conferences, and convergences. He is a respected elder with long involvement in grief work, men's work, and many other aspects of healing and enlivening the human spirit. He loves to facilitate the co-creation of beauty, meaning and passion through harmonious sound and juicy rhythm.
