I spent four days in Campbell River this past week and seven days in Yellowknife the week before. It was fun in both cities and we did lots of great work in the field of dying, death, grief, and loss. I had the joy of working with individuals and families helping them let go of past losses, under expressed grief, and unspoken regrets. Important work indeed and along with it I had the pleasure of meeting some ‘choir members’.
‘Choir members’ you ask?
“Yep choir members for sure!” I can say, as one of our workshop participants was a choirmaster for a newly emerging Threshold Choir in Campbell River!
The ‘choir’ is a group of folks all around North America who are setting out in their own way to do dying, death, grief, and loss differently. And we are bumping into each other with a greater frequency than a couple of years ago. It is quite fantastic! I have ‘choir members from coast to coast in Canada and in a least eleven states in the USA. How can you tell you have met a fellow ‘choir member’?
- They are excited to be able to chat with you about dying, death, grief and loss.
- They are not afraid of their own death.
- They are eager to support others going through grief.
- They love to learn more about dying and death.
- Their eyes sparkle when they hear a phrase like – grief support is an art form.
- They are likely already involved in dying, death, grief and loss in some way.
- They are very much alive in their lives and are up to something.
If you are curious about the ‘choir’ check out my web sites and see if you are intrigued by the contents and the philosophy. If you feel an urge, a pull or a calling follow it, trust your heart, and do something about it.
Warmly and with gratitude
