"Sadness signals the need to release an attachment. It is a symptom from the heart that warrants heeding. And if we learn to sing the blues of our life, we'll discover soon enough that expressing sadness inevitably yields joy." -- Gabrielle Roth
A passing sorrow enters the heart, opens the heart, expresses itself, release like a swift and sudden storm, and is as suddenly gone, relieved, put to rest.
But there are some sorrows we can't seem to get past, some big, some little, all holding us in, keeping us out, hanging on instead of letting go. We pass them on to our friends, lovers, and families. We find ourselves frozen in their Wave, unable to get past them and move on to now. We miss out on the medicine of sorrow to connect us and instead allow sorrow to separate us, isolate us, keep us past tense.
In this Heartbeat workshop we'll be led by the 5Rhythms as we give ourselves permission to move with our Waves of sorrow. We'll investigate letting them in and how we keep them out, passing on and getting past, hanging on and letting go. We'll explore finding the light touch of the strong and tenderized heart. And, even as we practice getting past the sorrow that keeps us from life, allowing sorrow to become a gateway to compassion for all of life.
