“I’ve done a lot of grief­work with dif­fer­ent teach­ers, and this one opened new aware­ness, mean­ing and move­ments. Part  of the pow­er is in the spe­cial prac­tices offered and part of the pow­er is in the gifts of these two extrao­d­i­nary teach­ers and guides. I felt deeply and com­plete­ly held by them and the process.”

“Spend­ing the two days with you shar­ing your stages of loss was the Vil­lage need­ed to allow those of us there to ful­ly grieve our sor­rows. I saw trans­for­ma­tion tak­ing place dur­ing the two days of shar­ing, call­ing in spir­its of our ances­tors, the drum­ming and ask­ing the ques­tion; “What is the Pur­pose, the mean­ing, and the les­son of my Grief?

Much grat­i­tude to both of you.”

“I came into the work­shop not real­ly know­ing what to expect. Over the past two days, I learned so much about myself. The pre­sen­ters held a safe and sacred space for each and every­one of us. The time was filled with love and kind­ness. Every aspect was valu­able to me. I took away an incred­i­ble learn­ing experience. ”

“The part of the work­shop that was most valu­able to me was the expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing and reflec­tions. John and Patri­cia pro­vid­ed a safe, com­fort­able envi­ron­ment that respond­ed to our needs. I did­n’t have any jour­ney­ing or med­i­ta­tion skills, but I quick­ly learned to use new tech­niques to help myself accept grief and trans­form the illu­sion of what it was into what it is now. It is a healthy, inte­grat­ed nat­ur­al part of me. This work­shop was a very rich expe­ri­ence.

“Patri­cia and John show up as teach­ers, as humans, and as beau­ti­ful spir­its in this pow­er­ful work­shop. They cre­at­ed a safe and sacred space for stu­dents to dis­cov­er the big­ger grief sur­round­ing their losses.”

“I nev­er before con­sid­ered that there is a spir­it of death. This con­cept is a beau­ti­ful re-fram­ing and user-friend­ly. Also, the results from the writ­ing prompts led me to help­ful insights. Also, the [wit­ness­ing of oth­ers] and speak­ing of [my]grief.”

“Each ele­ment had a unique ben­e­fit. I high­ly rec­om­mend this work­shop for any­one deal­ing with grief on so many dif­fer­ent lev­els. Eye open­ing, excit­ing and pro­vides a new per­spec­tive on all liv­ing things.”

“Soul­ful Sor­rows work­shop on grief changed me; it changed my deep-root­ed grief that was entwined with anger into grace-filled sad­ness and gen­tle grief which I can now gen­tly car­ry and even­tu­al­ly release, as joy returns.
