Unraveling the Myths of Grief


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.


You are invited to a free 4-day event

Unraveling the Myths of Grief March 28-31 at 11am-12pm Pacific

Sessions will be recorded and available for a limited time.

  • Have well-meaning people in your life given you the message that you should be “over it” by now?


  • Do you feel like you need to hide  your grief because it seems to make other people uncomfortable?


  • Are you troubled by the sense that you are grieving the wrong way?


  • Have you sensed the fragrance of the sacred rising from the fire of your loss?


  • Has loss reconfigured your priorities and you don’t know how to meet these changes?


If any of this resonates with you, we welcome you.

See what past participants are saying about grief work with Mirabai

“Through Mirabai’s work,  I have experienced a visceral shift from feeling isolated and separate because of my experience of loss to a natural connection to the interwoven love that we all share. She has radically supported my healing in grief through allowing there to be space for my soul's journey which is also connected to my soul's purpose and all I have to give.”

-Adriana Rizollo, founder of Body Temple Dance

"Hearing Mirabai’s deep wisdom is more than being supported or accompanied, it is also experiencing moments of clarity when you suddenly shift to another perspective. Grief can be threaded with grace, I learned from Mirabai’s teachings. My burden of grief lightened when she reframed the stages of grief as stations."

-Wendy Brown-Baez, author of Heart on the Page and Ceremonies of the Spirit 

What to expect during the free 4-day event

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. 


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

We are honored to walk with you 


If you are weary of carrying the burden of your loss through a world that tells you your pain is evidence of a malady to be cured rather than a holy space to be navigated with reverence, we welcome you.
