Welcome and blessings to you and to the web of relationships that sustain your aliveness here. Welcome to the lands you rest upon, to the bones of your ancestors, the entangled web of memory and absence that contour your perception of reality.
Welcome to all that your body is carrying—the unmetabolized grief, the rage, the numbness, the longing and the many other expression of life force that have been exiled from belonging within dominance-based culture.
We invite you to pause here. To breathe into your belly, the feeling of gravity supporting you, your roots reaching deep into the earth.
This website carries a vision of being a space for grief-tenders and medicine carriers called to create containers for the witnessing of collective ecological and ancestral grief. Informed by an animist somatic approach to ritual and process-work, it is a space for co-exploration of the ways in which human kin many generations displaced from ecologically embedded culture can begin to re-member the wider bodies of earth and ancestors. It is a dream of ritual space in direct contact with those elemental beings who have capacity for transmuting the intensity of existential emotions into material that is nourishing for life.
