One Door Closes: Ceremonies and Personal Rituals Honoring Endings.
“Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all. When there's a big disappointment, we don't know if that's the end of the story. It may just be the beginning of a great adventure. Life is like that."- Pema Chödrön, When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times
Our society is GREAT with beginnings. Engagements, marriages, baby blessings, the rush of new love. But endings... not so much. Death. Separation. Divorce. Miscarriage. Often these challenging times are fraught not just with grief, but with contentious words, with unbelievable stress, with shame, sometimes with seclusion, and often with the temptation to bypass the more difficult emotions through distraction, addiction, or other unhealthy substitutes.
What if we honored these times? What if each of these moments of 'ending' were approached with intention, with compassion for ourselves and others, with conscious surrender, with attention to what arises so we may work with it and move through it, rather than away from it?
Rev. Dawn offers personalized guidance and tools to create ceremonies and rituals- to be held either privately or in public- unique to your situation, religious or non-religious, to honor these times with devotion and presence so you can move on with grace, and strength, ready for the door that opens.
