About

WHAT WE BELIEVE

Friends, the time is now.

Time to inhabit our own bodies again. Time to activate the wisdom hibernating within our deepest bones. To feel the connections with our ancestors, with one another, with the beautiful lands we call home.

We cannot do this alone.

In order to face the tsunami of grief that has been rising for generations, we know it is time for our precious human bodies to slow down and feel. To really understand the immensity of the devastation that has occurred, and the immensity of the healing tasks before us, we need eachother.

We believe we can face this together, with gratitude, and aliveness.

TECHNOLOGIES OF REUNION

Ritual and ceremony have always served humans as technologies of reunion and togetherness. Grief and Gratitude is helping to rekindle these ritual practices, restoring the sense that we belong in our own skins, that we belong to this planet, and that we are connected to long lineage of ancestors. Instead of becoming mired overwhelm and confusion, Grief and Gratitude helps us to listen, to remain fluid, activated, and grateful to be alive. 

This is a call for support to all who recognize Griefwork to be a crucial part of activism, keeping us present and accountable to what is being asked of us in the midst of these troubled times.

GRIEF AND GRATITUDE IS READY TO GROW

Currently, our local Lodge is held seasonally (four times per year) and we are being flooded with requests for more frequent, varied, and longer gatherings, for discussions, and for mentorship. In order to nurture the tendrils emerging from the living organism that is the Grief Lodge, we are asking our community to come together to crowdfund this growth.

This is a call for support to all who recognize the crucial role of Griefwork in offering a haven for the maturation of fledgling cultures.

The time and skills of many people are needed to make this Lodge happen: Lodge event production involves everything from managing emails, inquiries and web outreach platforms, to holding ceremonial space, and on-the-ground activities such as childcare and chopping potatoes. We need a consistent basic budget needed for event production to ensure that all these roles are filled and fairly compensated.

And we want to make these services available in a way that offers reparations for historical damage that has been done.

MICRO-REPARATIONS

Many of the people who would benefit most from these emergent cultural technologies are the ones who can least afford them. For example, the Grief Lodge makes spots available on a pay-what-you-can basis to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), as well as low-income folks.

Your contributions help keep this healing work accessible to those who have been systemically disadvantaged and marginalized.

"You may not have done it, but you can help undo it"
If you are among the many people in North America and beyond who have access to resources based on unearned privilege or exploitation of resources, if you would like to help repair the damage your ancestors may have been involved in, supporting the Grief and Gratitude community helps directly to even out these inequities, to restore (and re-story!) local culture from the ground up.
