Grief as Celebration✨: Honoring our Fathers ❤️

Grief as Celebration✨: Honoring our Fathers ❤️
What is grief? What is celebration? Certainly two words that are rarely, if ever, used in the same sentence. Enter: the sacred paradox of Grief As Celebration.

As Helen Keller once said, "what we have once enjoyed, we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes part of us." Queen Elizabeth II puts it: grief is the price you pay for love. Kahlil Gibran writes: the deeper the sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. In this space, we will honor our fathers, how they shaped us and how they continue to be present in our lives. In honor of Father's Day on June 20th, we will feel and move through our grief - in other words, our love - while honoring our father loss because, even though our fathers are no longer here physically, we can still connect to them through creating an expansive, safe space in celebration of our undying love for them.

*This space is for you and your grief to be seen, heard and supported. Please note that we will be holding space for EVERYONE - from the fatherless to those who have complicated grief with their Fathers. Together, we'll experience the healing that happens when we hold space for our grief with confetti in community.*

In these monthly spaces, we guide you into understanding how grief can become a place of awakening, an entry point into remembering and celebrating the depth of our human love. We do this by softening through meditation, intentional reflection, community sharing, and a celebration practice woven throughout that powerfully connects and transforms how we relate to both grief and celebration. Our celebration tool is CONFETTI - the universal symbol of celebration. Confetti allows us to practice seeing our grief, bringing us through our feelings and into our healing we we own our stories.

Wherever you are on the spectrum of Father related grief, you are welcome here.

With love,

Jelena + Jasmin
