During this time of deep loss and uncertainty, the healing waters of grief can soothe and heal us. Join us in a community ritual to explore and share this magnificent emotion.


A Community Healing Ritual

Grief is a powerfully healing emotion that helps us mourn our losses and honor that which is gone forever. Grief is a vital part of love.

In this time of pandemic, upheaval, and uncertainty, when so much death and loss is occurring, the sacred and deeply healing rituals of grief are necessary.

We welcome you to an online grief ritual where we’ll learn about the important aspects of good ritual and gather together to mourn, to cry, to laugh, to rage, to love, and to feel into the depths of our grief in an empathic community.

Join Karla McLaren, M.Ed. and Dynamic Emotional Integration® professionals Sherry Olander and Andrea Watkins for a online exploration of grief that culminates in a 3-day online grief ritual (ritual schedule to be announced).

In this 2-week online course, you’ll explore:

  • An empathic approach to emotions that will help you access the gifts and skills in every emotion you have
  • An exploration of the magnificent emotion of grief, and practices to help you work with your grief
  • Supportive and simple information on how to create healing rituals
  • Skills and practices to help you access your emotions and ground yourself naturally
  • An exploration of your elemental balance and how it plays into your life and your healing
  • Specific information on how to create your own grief ritual
  • An online grief ritual to help you mourn your losses
  • Community support for you and your emotions
