About The Center for Somatic Grieving
The Center for Somatic Grieving (CSG) was created as a sanctuary for our ailing planet, offering unconditional love and acceptance for you to be supported, celebrated, and transformed through your experiences of loss. With the belief that grief is a powerful catalyst for personal growth and change, CSG offers a safe, welcoming space for all who are seeking greater purpose and connection in their lives. Together, we share intimately, creating a compassionate learning community that honors our differences and celebrates the unique path that each of us walks along our grief journey.
Our somatic, mindfulness-based training and programs are geared towards those who are willing to go deep and allow their grief to serve as an opportunity for greater self-inquiry, awareness, and personal transformation.
All of our programs are rooted in the ancient yogic teachings of meditation and somatic awareness in combination with the power of reflection and being witnessed in your authentic experience. One of our favorite sayings is that, “We become who we are not in spite of our losses, but because of them,” which allows us to grow and find peace when we are given the love, support, guidance, and time to do so.
CSG was birthed out of the Grief Support Network
CSG recognizes and answers the call for there to be a gathering place for yoga teachers, seekers, grievers, deep souls, and all who feel called to the beauty and sacredness of the natural world to heal their hearts and find solace in a loving community. Whether you have come to find personal healing or feel a fire in your belly to be of service supporting others through loss, CSG offers a proven curriculum that meets you where you are while offering inspiration and community to be celebrated and accepted.
CSG offers professional training and destination retreats to support you in deepening your relationship with yourself as a pathway to supporting others and cultivating gratitude and joy in your life. We invite you to join our community and add your gifts to the collective pot! In our circle together, we will bear witness to each other’s pain and co-create deep connection, vulnerability, and trust to break down the walls that separate us from our truth and open us to the freedom and great LOVE that is the other side of GRIEF.
The power of professional & personal development training in combination with transformational wellness retreats is changing the landscape of grief work and what is possible when healing from loss. There is a special kind of magic that occurs when we create a sacred space that is outside of our daily life to look within for the answers that we seek. Our grief can serve as a great illuminator of what is most important in life, which then initiates an accelerated process of healing and growth. If you feel called to be a part of this movement of change - creating a healthier, more empowered, honest and embodied relationship to loss, please reach out to connect with us directly and join our global community of teachers, grievers and gentle souls.
