Ritual Work & Grief Facilitation

Rituals can have a transformative power in our everyday actions as well as when everything seems to fall apart, when we grieve and loose what we love. They connect us to what is more-than-human and allow us to dive deep into the mystery and magic of being alive. Our understanding of ritual and grief work is shaped by the circlewise institute.
