To Die and So To Grow

Opening our hearts to a sacred way of approaching and integrating the metaphorical and literal deaths on our journey.

Join me as we enter into a sacred space of rituals to reverence and honour the many deaths that have imprinted us along the way. Through the specific focus in ritual we will create paths to reclamation and restoration. 

A ritual is the enactment of a myth. And by participating in the ritual, you are participating in the myth. And since myth is a projection of the depth wisdom of the psyche, by participating in a ritual, participating in the myth, you are being, as it were, put in accord with that wisdom.
— Joseph Campbell

The workshop includes:

  • Shamanic Ceremony-earth based ritual from Andean Shamanism to support integration, nurturing, perceptual shifts and reclamation;
  • Honouring/Grief Ceremony-yoga/dance/meditation;
  • Kundalini and Restorative Yoga, mantra, mudra;
  • Journalling;
  • Drum journeys

No experience necessary. Please bring a journal and pen, any sacred item you wish to charge/bless, a flower (even one, single stem rose)


Teresa is a death doula*, ceremonialist, trauma informed yoga teacher and trans affirming birth doula who shares ceremony, womb healings, teacher trainings and retreats locally and internationally. Teresa feels it is a sublime honour to create inclusive, sacred spaces to humbly guide and witness people in all phases and transitions of life.

A death doula is one who supports people and animals on their journeys of metaphorical and literal deaths.

Limited to 15 participants for this yoga therapeutic weekend.
