The Omega Institute Presents

Making Peace With Loss 
Honoring Grief Through Mindfulness
and Sacred Ceremony

October 14 - 16, 2022    Rhinebeck, NY. 


Six CE credit hours available 


If you are mourning the death of a loved one or a loss of any kind, including divorce, job loss, pet loss, health loss, or any major life transition, this workshop provides a rare emotional learning  experience via interactive processes and sacred rituals for navigating the grief journey.

Participants will be led to deeper healing by moving toward internal transformation as opposed to focusing on external events. We do this through guided meditation and gentle body work, along with ritual and ceremony, which gives form to the formless and converts unseen healing energies into practical toolsFind comfort and support in an array of healing practices and multicultural traditions for working with grief, including yoga, meditation, art therapy, music therapy, and sacred ceremony.

In this weekend retreat, you will learn to:

. Accept and embrace impermanence
. Work with the natural ebb and flow of human experience
. Understand loss, pain, contraction and expansion
. Develop practices for re-opening a wounded heart
. Create personal healing rituals to honor the grief journey

On Saturday evening, psychic medium Suzane Northrop
