Join author Amy Wright Glenn as she holds a gentle and safe space wherein participants are welcome to be present ~ through private/personal ritual ~ to their stories of grief, loss, and difficult change.
Amy recorded a ritual by candlelight wherein she guided participants in the creation of an alter of memory honoring all forms of loss during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Consider the losses we all are facing:
*death and illness of those we love due to Covid-19
*significant changes in life circumstance that have impacted us due to Covid-19
*the impact of social distancing on your heart, spirit, social circles
*the impact Covid-19 has had on pregnancy, birth, and pregnancy loss
*divorce or significant relationship stress due to the pandemic
*job and income loss/stress
*pain our children feel from missing regular school, friends, sports
*the increasingly hostile political tensions and rise of extremist views
*a death for any reason during the pandemic, with disruption of ability to gather friends and family to grieve together
How do we sit with our grief? How do we grieve our losses?
As we can learn best care practices that guide us to hold gentle space for our sorrows~ rituals can help.
Rituals of Loss is a one-hour ritual experience where in meditations, song, poetry, readings, and guidance on creating a personal ritual ~ using candlelight ~ are given.
Each participant is invited to place a photo, memento, stone, or treasure representing a significant loss near a candle. Meditations, prayers and readings given are ecumenical in nature. One need not belong to any particular faith tradition to participate and people of all traditions are welcome to join ~ bringing their own prayers and customs to the experience.
This is a hard time for our world. Amy encourages the ritual presented to be practiced over and over as needed so we can strengthen our power to holding space for sorrow and hard change ~ while keeping our compassion, heart, mindfulness, and breath flowing.
All proceeds will be donated to Doctors without Borders ~ an organization of brave ones doing so much at this time to relieve the suffering of families in war-torn countries and refugees ~ those who are particularly vulnerable to Covid-19.

I am almost 64-years-old so I have also had a lot of experience with death and dying – personally, professionally and spiritually. Yet, the words, attitude and methods Amy used to present this powerful information will certainly enhance my own life, future teaching and facilitating those in need. Thank you for all your gentle ways, Amy!

Amy is a very powerful teacher because her teaching comes directly from her heart and from a life that has experienced what she is teaching.
