Outside of Ottawa
All the wisdom teachings of the world tell us the key to life lies in the manner in which we meet death within and around us. This retreat will be an opportunity to turn towards our own death, the deaths of our loved ones, and the “everyday opportunities to die” that abound in a life fully lived.
Poetry is the only language that can speak to and through us of the great Mystery of death. In this retreat poetry, ritual, movement, writing, breath-work, silence and inquiry build an exquisitely supportive space where we can welcome the fear, grief, blessing and awakening that come from opening to death on practical, emotional, relational, and spiritual levels.
