Through the Waters of Sorrow... Dance Journey..

For grief and sorrow is

also an expression

of deep, deep, love.

A evening in sharing in 

sacred space for sorrow

with Kathy Popplewell.

Friday 17 Nov 2017. 6.30pm-9.30pm. Bamboo Buddha, Holgate, NSW.

​A guided dance journey and sacred circle for women. Sharing in creating a sacred space for the exploration, connecting to and releasing of sorrow through talking circle, movement, breath, sound and dance in the Red Tent with Wild Woman Dreaming Medicine Woman Kathy Popplewell.  


For grief, sorrow and loss are also an expression of deep, deep, love. And has the capacity once acknowledged and honoured to expand us deeper into love and life.


However being alone in ones sorrow without safe places to explore or express it or talk about it or hear others journeys with grief can make it not only extremely lonely and isolating. But also push it deeper into our bodies. Where it becomes hard, compressed and frozen and you may feel like you have lost your feeling for life, or it may be so jammed up inside that it's like a ticking time bomb about to explode (physically, emotionally or into a dis-ease).

This takes a massive toll not only on ourselves but also on our loved ones and our community. 

Grief, loss is something that will effect us all at some point in our lifetimes. However in our modern day, emotionally repressed, sophisticated society, there tends to be not many safe spaces where we are allowed to talk about, express, be in, feel and explore our feelings of grief, sorrow, loss and love.


This guided dance journey and sacred circle is a space to support the journey of that. No matter where on your journey of grief and sorrow you are, you are welcome to this space. There is no sorrow too big or too small to feel, to share, to acknowledge, to honour, to journey through the waters of sorrow with.


There is no right or wrong sorrow. All of it is sacred. All of it has wisdom and gifts in it. The whole of you is worthy. Some of the sorrow you feel and you know you need to transmute, may not even be yours. It may have been passed down from past generations, it may be from the world, from nature, from close family or friends, or from losses and sorrows within yourself. Again. All is welcome to this space.


Bring it to be spoken, to be danced, to be breathed, to be moved, to be sung, to be honoured, to be acknowledged, to be felt, and to be placed back into the ever flowing feeling waters of the ever evolving feminine heart and soul.
