Unraveling the Myths of Grief

March 5-8

Join Us

Grief is a natural response to all flavors of heartbreak.


We have all experienced loss and whether someone you love died, you are going through a breakup, health diagnosis, or any other life shattering change, your loss counts.


Welcome to Wild Heart

A space of refuge where we welcome grief as a friend on the spiritual journey


You are invited to join a vast circle of grieving people who long for a space where we can enter into an authentic grieving process, where no one will try to correct or direct us and where the internal voices of shame that heap pain on top of pain grow quiet.

The Daily Rhythm

Each day we will unravel a grief myth together.

Myth 1

"There is a “right” and “wrong” way to grieve"

We lovingly dismantle the belief that there is some kind of correct timeline for your loss and that one day you will be over it, rather than embracing grief as a natural and ever-unfolding response of the heart.

Myth 2

"Your grief is a burden"

As we continue to explore ways society tries to shut down your grief, we practice a guided meditation to reveal the truth that you are part of a vast circle of beings who have suffered loss, and your broken heart is welcome here.

Myth 3

"Spiritual people don’t grieve"

We unmask the notion that to be spiritual means to be above grief and loss, and that transcending our authentic experience of heartbreak is somehow proof of how enlightened we are.  In this session we write in response to an evocative prompt.

Myth 4

"Loss is the end of the story"

Welcoming all forms of loss–death of a loved one, break-ups, health, kids leaving home–we explore the invitation to bless the full spectrum of the human condition as an opportunity for awakening.  Mirabai will respond to questions about cultivating grief as a spiritual path. 
Join Us

By the end of our four days together, you will…

-Have a renewed sense of trust in your own authentic process


-Know that there is a safe place to lay down your broken heart and be real about it


-Be emboldened to reenter the stream of life with grief as a loving companion rather than a terrifying adversary


-Discover the sacred wellspring at the heart of your loss
