Regardless of our belief system, the natural human response to any loss is grief. That loss may be the death of a loved one, but the mind and body also react with grief to the loss of a pet, a job, a dream, or even the discontinuation of a preferred brand of sneakers. Because we identify ourselves through our attachments, losing persons or things to which we are attached requires a redefinition of who we are.
Yoga can be instrumental in redefining ourselves based on our true spiritual essence. In this retreat, we
- Explore the physical symptoms of grief and their psychoneurological basis
- Clarify the importance of the heart chakra in physical and emotional health
- Learn and practice helpful techniques for relieving grief
- Experience the comfort and acceptance of being with others who are dealing with loss.
Antonio Sausys draws from yoga and psychotherapy, alternating experiential work with teaching talks to present tools for managing grief.
