guiding you through grief, loss, and new life
Introvert Winter and Grief

Introvert Winter and Grief

Winter is an introvert season, designed for inward reflection and inner mending. There’s a few weeks left before Spring to consolidate your strengths, so continue with your deep rest, dreaming, and visioning. Mindful action will come and you will emerge into Spring at the right time.

It’s good to get support to face the waves of grief. Bodywork and energy work can support you to move stuck emotions in the physical and energy bodies. Creative process and ritual can help you tap your inner knowing and express the Mystery of this loss and transition. Contact me for support at this potent transitional time. I would love to support your unique healing process.
