In ancient times, the ritual and consistent practice after an act of nature or other tragedy was to come together and grieve. This practice supported community and prevented it from having deep soul loss and fragmentation.
We have two challenges now. One is that many people have stopped participating in these types of rituals to transcend the pain, and the other challenge stems from the fact that we learn about world losses at a moment’s notice. If we are not into the practice of rituals to move us from the pain to the gain, we will continue to be weary as a people and will not step into our greater capacities as a society.
