Grief associated with a loss of a loved one can feel unbearable. Acknowledging and expressing your grief in community through ritual can help you feel less isolated and burdened. Participating in Grief Rituals allows you to access and work through your grief in a safe and constructive way. Sometimes people unearth deep emotions that need continued attention. Remember that grieving is an ongoing process in our lives.

Grief Support Network is deeply grateful for the generous Dagara people of Burkina Faso, West Africa, for bringing their profound and healing grief ritual tradition to our culture. As a community, we have been blessed with the presence of Sobonfu Some, before she passed away in 2016, to teach us her village’s ways of honoring the ancestors and coming together as a community to share in collective grief. Our ritual is informed and facilitated by Wendy Kaas who was trained in this tradition.

In GSN’s Grief Rituals, participants report that they:

• Feel more heart-connected

• Feel a sense of being cleansed

• Feel less isolated

• Feel lighter after the experience

• Feel a new or renewed connection to their ancestors

• Feel unburdened by their grief

• Leave with a sense of clarity or centeredness 

Join us as we work with some ancient tools to help us access the deeper parts of ourselves we couldn’t otherwise touch. Come drum, sing, and create a village together that has the power to honor and transmute our grief into the next stage of its journey.
