About the Workshop
Welcome to this gentle and deep exploration of the wisdom of yoga and how it can help us navigate grief, loss and disappointment.
On this half-day yoga experience we will explore the wisdom of the Indian Goddess Dhumavati, who is the grandmother and crone goddess of yoga. The archetypal stories and symbology of Dhumavati can help us accept grief and loss as a part of life, and through powerful yogic practices, transmute grief into compassion and peace.
“In our modern culture, we find little tolerance for the pace of grief. Within our tight schedules, times of crisis, grief and loss seem to take too much time. We get impatient. We think there is something wrong with us, that we should get over it, that things should “get back to normal. Turning to the Goddess myths, we find maps and frameworks of understanding that help us to stay with and honour the process, not as a detour, but as an important maturing and awakening into the death/life cycle that we are made of”. Chameli Ardagh
Grief is an inevitable part of being human. Some of us have experienced major grief: illness, death, and relationship endings; all of us have experienced disappointment and loss of some sort.
Grief can be a difficult emotion for many of us to navigate. Our modern-day culture does not readily support us in our grief journey. It can be important that we prioritise time and space to be with grief to allow the healing process to unfold.
Grief can have its own unique path for each of us, and we can be at different stages of our grief process. This workshop is an offering to meet us wherever we are in our grief process and to offer the opportunity to be witnessed by others in the safety of a Sacred Women’s Circle. You will also learn simple and effective yoga practices, that you can take home to deepen your personal growth and healing.
Through the practice of yoga and meditation and the exploration of yoga mythology and philosophy, you will experience a supportive space to be with your grief and learn practices to support you on your healing journey with grief.

About your host
Jane’s personal relationship with grief has been difficult, growing up in a family where emotions, particularly grief and anger were not acknowledged. She has experienced many profound griefs in her adult years: personal illness and a major midlife crisis; cancer and chronic illness in her beautiful family; the death of both her parents, loss of friends to suicide; and an ever-present and growing grief to the state of the world and environment.
It was the discovery of the healing power of yoga that helped Jane navigate her healing journey with grief. When she discovered the wisdom goddesses of yoga, it was truly transformational for her yoga practice and teaching.
This workshop draws from Jane’s 10 years of immersion in yoga training and teaching as well as her BSc. in Psychology, PhD in Education and her extensive work experience as a leader of change in organisations.
