Grief and Water
Azul-Valerie Thome brings forth a message of water with invitation for others to engage in dialogue. I'm very grateful that Azul thought to include me in this conversation.
In addition to the gratitude offered my Mother(s), I want to include gratitude to Sobonfu Somé whose work with Malidoma Patrice Somé inspired the 2007 grief ritual, co-facilitated by Francis Weller (Wisdom Bridge), that liberated me to know basic gladness. While my healing is with thanks to a variety of modalities and contact with certain individuals, I believe the grieving ritual cleared me of chronic depression and, thus, opened me to the possibility of greater healing.
