• Take an hour away from zoom to resource, either by going into Nature or resting in our connection to whatever resources we have access to within our homes.
• Return together on Zoom and take part in a short embodiment practice
• Offer our gratitudes in turn to support ourselves and each other
• Each share a gift of grief and unburden our hearts in turn for a long hour
• Each in turn light a tea light to offer light for whatever we wish to invite in to our hearts.
• An embodied integration practice will be offered before we close where we focus on transition out of ceremony and self-care
• A closing ritual together
