Joanie will be sharing songs from her project THE SHAME // THE LIGHT and other women’s songs, holding space so that together we can give voice to our experiences and creating beautiful ceremony to help us on our way through our lives as women. Expect some tears and much belly laughter as we finally get to put aside generations of separation and come together to share our depths and light with each other.
Belonging – A Journey of Enquiry
With Jenny O’Hare and Niall Graham
14th – 16th October 2022
As humans, we have a deep desire to belong; be that to place, to a people, or simply to ourselves. Much of what has traditionally offered us this belonging is now shifting rapidly. In such a landscape, how is it that we can root ourselves in lives of meaning?
You are invited to a deeply experiential weekend in which we will explore the thread of Belonging through relationship to self, place, community and culture.
Lost Rites and the Community of Grief
Remembering the Way
With Death Doula Alexandra Derwen and apprentice Death Doula Tanya Bryan
The premise of the “community of grief” is that Grief itself is a force for community cohesion and repair; whatever our personal stories of loss it is in the shared circle space that the potential for alchemy and amplification of the healing process takes place. If you feel moved and called to this work then you belong there; we do ask that people come with open hearts ready to participate with curiosity and courage; but most importantly just bring your broken human selves and the circle itself will hold you.
