Processing Grief & Reclaiming Vitality for the New Year

While every day has the potential to be a fresh start, the new year is an opportune time to gather, reflect, and orient to the present and the future. Taking time to feel what has passed and changed, and what remains also makes room for that which is yet to come. Here, we can pause to remember what is meaningful, and what makes our hearts come alive. Hope is a natural part of our human terrain, and when space and time are available, we can allow ourselves to be moved by this too.

During this workshop, I invite you into a circle of community to connect, reflect, listen and share. I will offer brief meditations with a longer yoga nidra practice to close. Please bring a journal to write or draw, and, if you’d like, any objects that may hold meaning for you.

I welcome you exactly as you are, and look forward to where we may journey together.

“Hope” is the thing with feathers -

That perches in the soul -

And sings the tune without the words -

And never stops - at all

~ Emily Dickinson

Bridging Grief and Hope in Community

These past 12+ months have likely elicited the full range of human experience, from grief to unexpected joy, loss and hope, discomfort and comfort. I invite you into a sacred circle of community, to move, breathe, share and witness. It is often through the power of community that we can draw upon collective strength to open more fully to what has been left unseen or unmet.

In this online class, we will come together to both grieve what has been lost in the year passed, and to equally imagine what might be possible in the year to come. During our time, you can expect brief seated movement, a centering, and space to give voice to your experience and to listen to others. I will share a 25 minute yoga nidra practice to support this journey. This class will be limited to 10 people who are open to and seeking this kind of exploration.

You can sign up at Studio Satya in the online class schedule.

Studio Satya 300 Hr Teacher Training

Dates coming soon (both online option and limited space for live attendance)

Among the modules by my colleagues, I’ll be offering a 15 hour module on Holding Space and Fostering Community that you can sign up for individually or take as part of the 300 hour comprehensive program.

Holding Space and Fostering Community Module (15 hours):

In this module, we will explore what it means to hold space for healing and to foster community. Both are intimately tied, as trusted communities can support healing, and this in turn strengthens the circle of community itself. A healing space welcomes people to show up as they are, where they are met and held with compassion, and without agenda. As facilitators, we can learn how to hold the container for individuals to approach the edge of both comfort and discomfort, as they are ready, where often growth or shift awaits them on the other side. No matter to whom or what you are teaching, this module will help you become aware of the energetic movements happening within a group, and how to hold your offering with skill, care and ongoing self-inquiry. Our time will be a combination of conversation, reflection, meditation and journaling.
