Event Description

This Soul rejuvenating ritual is designed to help us break through our cultural blockages around grief. Throughout our lives, we all experience losses in various forms. Some of these include: health challenges, work problems, unlived dreams, broken relationships, abuse and loved ones who die. If we aren’t in an active and intimate relationship with the grief of our losses, then the magic, passion, grace, joy and intimacy with life often gets veiled by our unexperienced grief. Grief turned inwards often distorts itself and becomes internal and/or external judgements and violence. Many of us are overwhelmed with the stress and loss showing up in our own lives, that is can be very difficult to face into the devastations that are occurring on the planet.  

When we honor grief as sacred and create a strong community container for it, we can begin to recover the nourishing qualities of our grief which can deepen our sense of inner-connection with all of life. We may realize that our grief is shared and is never solely individual. We can realize the sacredness and wisdom of our grief.  

As we learn to deeply include earth honoring ceremonies and community as part of the ritual, we can open to the new dream of the Earth. This dream is rooted in sacred honoring of all life and is sourced from a deep wellspring of compassion, joy and justice. The conscious embrace of our grief helps us have more resilience for navigating these turbulent times and responding with passion, joy and clarity.  

Join us to discover the sacred medicine of grief to restore vitality and gratitude in our lives. To allow the sacred waters of grief to cleanse and strengthen our connection to ourselves, our partners, friends, family, community and the Earth. As we come together, we open Sacred Heart of Creation where the tears of the Divine can fill us with a heart-illuminated passion that can guide our actions for the benefit of the whole. 

During our time, we will participate in Earth based Andean ceremony, writing exercises, illuminated poetry and sacred texts, sacred music and grief ritual. 

Location: Private Residence in Ashland. Registration required.  
Time: 10am-5pm Saturday

Fukushima's Nuclear Waste Will Be Dumped Into the Ocean, Japanese Plant Owner Says | Newsweek

A member of the media uses a Geiger counter at Tokyo Electric Power Company's (TEPCO) Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in Okuma, Fukushima, Japan, February 23.

Tainted: Can California solve pot's pesticide problem? | The Cannifornian

The big difference will be the amount of pesticides in your weed. That’s because starting Jan. 2,  when California’s vast legal marijuana market opens, all cannabis must be tested — and most chemicals will be banned. Much of California’s cannabis is tainted, including the “medicinal” stuff. But soon state-sanctioned weed may become the greenest in the nation.

Monsanto, Bayer, DuPont, Dow Chemical, and Syngenta defend their coming oligopoly (MON) (DD) (DOW) (SYT) | Quartz

Top executives from Bayer, Monsanto, DuPont, Dow Chemical, and Syngenta today (Sept. 20) testified before the US Senate Judiciary Committee in Washington, making a case for why federal regulators should approve the mega-mergers, which stand to fundamentally reorganize global agriculture. (Executives from the sixth company involved in the consolidation, China National Chemical Corp., declined an invitation to appear at the hearing.)
