TRUTH MANDALA: A COMMUNITY RITUAL FOR HONORING OUR GRIEF, ANXIETY, ANGER AND LOVE FOR THE WORLD

DATE: Sunday, November 1st

TIME: 10:30am PT/11:30am MT/1:30pm ET for 2 hours

PLACE: At Home/Remote Retreat

COST: Sliding scale donation

NOTE: This offering is appropriate for newcomers and for those who have experienced a Truth Mandala previously.

 

Join Nina Simons and Deborah Eden Tull for a 2-hour ceremony that creates a brave space to experience, witness and (if desired) express emotions you may be feeling about systemic racism, state violence, climate, the pandemic and all the roiling changes, challenges and movements uprising at this time.

In the lineage of Joanna Macy’s The Work That Reconnects, and the recognition that emotions – when not experienced or expressed – can create blockages in our bodies, minds and spirits, we are offering this experience on zoom towards collective and personal healing and transformation. Many report feeling wells of compassion, relief and regenerative and healthful flow after experiencing it. The Truth Mandala can be transformative and healing whether you opt to speak or not, and we offer it as a sliding scale donation experience, with no-one turned away for lack of funds.

If you are registering, please be sure to read the Resources and Guidelines section below.
