A circle has been called! Bring drums or rattles, your voice and a desire to fall into soulful descent. This is where we go to pierce the veil, to feel the surprising longings of our heart and hear the deep animal wail trapped in the grief of what’s happening in our world. Radical personal and cultural transformation at this time requires such a descent into the inescapable grief and despair evoked by a sober view of contemporary Western culture and the real possibility of self-inflicted extinction. The descent to soul enables us to cultivate our innate visionary skills, respond creatively to the dangerous opportunities of our times, and achieve real change in our world. Activist and scholar Joanna Macy has been guiding people in grief rituals to reinvigorate their social change network. She says, “Our experience of pain for the world springs from our interconnectedness with all beings, from which also arises our powers to act on their behalf.” And, “Grief is the glue to heal the illusion of separation between us and the rest of the web of life. ”The origins of the word “care” means “to grieve.” These tender four letters have mutated into Hallmark greetings. But in the ancient tongues of Old English and German, Saxon and Gothic, to care meant to feel concern, grieve, lament, to cry out and scream. Grieving rituals are woven into our forgotten indigenous roots, for this is the wild way, the way of revealing soul. Our essential nature is to dream our Mother Earth’s impossible dreams, to be an accessible dreamer. As the creatures, mountains, waters, stones, trunks and stems, leaves and flowers dreamed humans, so it is our place to dream with all our relations, that which is called into being. But unexpressed grief inhibits this innate capacity and contributes to autoimmune disease, digestive issues and erosion of our psychospiritual health. Though we are outraged, using social media to vent, we must pay attention to what happens to the soft animal of our body. The creep of apathy and desensitization, sinking into head shaking helpless hopelessness and becoming lost in the pathology of sorrow is a real threat. To be realized dreamers we must grieve. Come join the fray. Let loose the animal sound at the depth of your longing. You’ll be in good company. Donation accepted for cost of the venue only. Some back jacks and pillows are available on-site. To insure your comfort during ceremony please bring what you need to support your seating on the floor.For more information contact Alex Merrin: email@example.com or 503.228.7784 http://www.facebook.com/events/134994373535268/

Join Robert Gonzales for a weekend exploration of Living Compassion. This work points towards the spiritual dimensions of Nonviolent Communication (NVC). It has both a deeply inner, transformative aspect and an intensely practical, in-the-world application. The focus of this workshop is to establish and cultivate an embodied consciousness of self-compassion and compassionate communication. The workshop will include: o Practices to deepen self-compassion and unconditional self-acceptance. o Cultivating and dwelling in the Beauty of Needs - understanding and awareness of how the qualities of the heart that we call needs live in us and are the key to living the fullness of life. o Living and communicating from fullness, rather than deficiency. As we deepen into self-compassion and the work of inner transformation occurs, we become more aware of blockages that keep us from acting in integrity with our deepest values. The work of Living Compassion provides an elegant map to transform these blockages into authentic, compassionate communication with others. Please join him for a weekend of transforming practices that enable us to live with compassion and an open heart.
