Sacred Embodiment Community Events
Publisher/HostSacred Embodiment Community Events
Facilitated by Laurence Cole & Alexandra (Ahlay) Blakely

This is a two day retreat. We will be on ritual time, meaning time is left at the door once you enter.
Our time together will be a combination of singing, poetry, movement, practice in sacred listening, witnessing and being witnessed and sharing with the whole group and in smaller groups.

This space is an opportunity to share what is moving through us in whatever shape or form it comes in - perhaps numbness, shame, rage, trembling, stillness, wailing or something else.

Our work is also inspired by the five gates of grief from Francis Weller: Everything we love we will lose, the places that have not known love, the sorrows of the world, the things we cannot even name that we ache for, and intergenerational or ancestral grief. Together, we will lean into the vulnerability, trust, and surrender needed to remember how to grieve together as a community.
​RITUAL EARLY BIRD FEE IS $400 USD (September 6 - October 10, 2023)
​RITUAL FEE IS $500 USD (October 11 - November 28)
Sliding scale limited solidarity slots available.
20% of ritual fees will be redistributed to the Grief to Action Camp.
We don't believe in barriers to healing spaces. The cost of this retreat should not be a barrier to you if this space is calling to your soul. That being said, the cost of this ritual is so that the facilitators and organizers may be resourced and we can redistribute offerings to Real Rent Duwamish & The Grief to Action Camp. We are committed to making this work accessible to a wide variety of communities; especially cash poor and working class folks who are on the front lines of social movements and community work. Limited Sliding Scale Slots and two work trade options per ritual are available.
