In this community study, we weave together love, responsibility, integrity, and spiritual connection. Our teachings are rooted in the wisdom of Earth-based cultures, our guides share practices that honor and cherish this connection and Camino.

This Cohort is an opportunity to explore and reshape how we find nourishment within the art of devotion back to the sacred self.


***This cohort is open to all-bodied people, however, it must be mentioned, that some material will focus on physical womb care- regardless, we all come from a womb- and all are welcome.

"When women reassert their relationship with the wildish nature, they are gifted with a permanent and internal watcher, a knower, a visionary, an oracle, an inspiratrice, an intuitive, a maker, a creator, an inventor, and a listener who guide, suggest, and urge vibrant life in the inner and outer worlds.

When women are close to this nature the fact that relationship glows through them. This wild teacher, wild mother, wild mentor supports their inner and outer lives- no matter what.

Break down of our Journey

Week 1: Cultivating Harmony

In these opening weeks, we'll set the foundation for our journey. Explore the life/death/life cycle, dive into the indigenous perspectives on relationships, and learn how different cultures perceive death as a transition rather than an end. Through guided meditations and community discussions, you'll begin to reshape your understanding of death and its role in our lives.

Week 3-4: Unveiling Ancestral Wisdom

These weeks are dedicated to honoring ancestral wisdom. Discover the intricate art of crafting personal altars and learn how these rituals can serve as bridges to the afterlife and our ancestors. We'll venture into diverse cultural blueprints, uncovering the rituals of Celtic Ireland, the mysteries of ancient Egypt, and the soulful traditions of the Yoruba tribe. These insights will guide us towards a more profound relationship with our own ancestry.

Week 5: Embracing Transformation

As we approach the culmination of our journey, we'll explore the concept of transformation itself. Discover how different cultures perceive the various deaths within life - not just physical, but also the symbolic deaths that mark growth and change. Dive into practices that lift the veil between worlds, allowing for a sacred communion with the unseen. Learn to embrace instinct and intuition as guides, attuning yourself to death's wisdom as a mentor for life.

Testimonials

“The Reimagining Death Cohort not only helped me through my grief process after the loss of my mother, but it helped me to understand the dynamics of life on the other side. This was better than grief therapy for me. Learning how other cultures revere death was an enlightening component of the culture, as well. Understanding that we only transform energy when we leave this realm gave me a sense of peace that I didn't have before taking this course! Communing with Mariana and other beautiful souls let me know that we're never alone and we're all just walking each other home.”
