We will gather to Honor Our Love and Pain for the World. It will be part council circle where we share our truths about things on the tip of our hearts, part simple grief ritual, witnessing and being witnessed in grief and other energies together, lending our tears & laughter to the watershed; and part eco-art and ecosensual exploration, getting curious about earthy joy/pleasure to root our work/play in the world.
May the sun behind veils and grief behind masks be invitations to new intimacies and wild remembrances. May we smuggle in contraband questions under cover of haze.
Could we weave our grief, unknowingness, sacred rage, and delicate unthwartable longings into previously undared and shared possibilities?
How nourishing to witness and be witnessed in our difficult (and joyful) emotions in circle and ritual, cultivating earth community, and sharing ways of taking care of ourselves and engaging in empowering action.
Pain, grief, and other sometimes difficult emotions are part of the Earth’s feedback mechanism. And Grief was always meant to held in community.
Then we told the hard truth—about the state of the world, about the state of our emotions.
