Waves of Grief Sessions
Join us on the second Sunday of each month from 9:30am-11:30am on sand and in the sea as we navigate the Waves of Grief and loss together, building connection and community. Bring your own gear to enjoy Mother Ocean how you feel best: Swim, Surf, Boogie/Body Board, Stretch, Stroll in stoke alongside the waves.
All ocean experiences welcome. This is a free year-round Ocean + Surf Therapy program that allows for flow and meaningful connection supported by the ocean and hosted by our global Waves of Grief collective.
This is an opportunity to gather in community to honor, share and witness personal and collective grief. We start in circle on the sand, then invite everyone to soak in vitamin sea through watching, wading, swimming, boogie boarding or surfing, etc.
2023 Calendar & Registration
Community surf therapy session locations:
We closely monitor several localized weather forecasts so as to make the best decision about the weather before a session.
We honor your time and your experience healing, so rain normally does not inhibit us from gathering. We will, however, cancel or postpone if the conditions are unsafe. High wind, large waves, lightning, and hazardous runoff from recent rains are examples of unsafe conditions that make us decide to tend to self care and not force our will towards nature’s calling. If we do cancel or postpone we hope then that you spend time individually tending to your souls by honoring what we yearn for.
“We grieve the loves we’ve lost. We grieve our abilities vanishing through illness or age. We grieve the loss of faith in our religion. We grieve our children leaving home. We grieve the paths we didn’t walk. We grieve the family we never had. We grieve the suffering of the planet. But while grief may look like an expression of pain that serves no purpose, it is actually the soul’s acknowledgement of what we value. Grief is the honor we pay to that which is dear to us.” -
