‚ÄúTime with others willing to open their stories in collected writings is amazing. It allows sharing without ‚Äútoo much‚ÄĚ while we process our own grief and amplify understanding.‚ÄĚ

-Mary Louise M.

What is Threshold Transformations: 

A Holy Lament Blog?

Holy Lament is Wild Heart's ongoing grief community that explores 12 thresholds of grief as spiritual practice on the journey of loss and longing.

Holy Lament members receive weekly writing prompts from Mirabai Starr. Writing as spiritual practice is the alchemical fire that supports our broken-open hearts to be witnessed and held in the process of transformation.

Threshold Transformations is an invitation to Holy Lament members to more widely share glimpses from their journey. 

You are invited to bear witness with a compassionate heart.
